Why study at Trine University

Trine's philosophy of teaching has always been to put the student first. The small class sizes of 17:1, be it a 100-level or a 400-level course, are intended to provide individual attention to students and allow our experienced professors to understand students and help bring their potential out. The individual, focused attention also allows students to clear their doubts in a one-on-one session or be able to take part in study groups that happen in the evening for students to learn in a holistic, enriching environment. The state-of-the-art facilities at the university, whether in athletics, engineering, business and management or arts and sciences, enable Trine students to gain real-world experience and get a leg up in the field.

Education at Trine is focused at producing graduates whose skills are tailored to industry, allowing students to embark upon successful career paths. Learning to operate different kinds of manufacturing equipment or processes, making your own video game, learning when to disinvest from a company — all these learnings and experiences are delivered in a way to maximize learning and retention.

As an incentive for undergraduate students to join, Trine offers on-campus jobs, scholarships, and financial aid packages of different calibers. With the efforts of both well-connected professors and the Career Center, motivated and high-performing undergraduate students are able to participate in internships and co-ops under the curricular practical training (CPT) program after their first academic year. Trine’s hybrid graduate classes are a unique blend of seated and virtual classes that allow those students to pursue industrial experience while taking classes. CPT allows for undergraduate and graduate students to have US work experience during their degree program.

With an employment rate of more than 99% within six months of graduation over the past seven years, Trine University prepares you for the workforce. Part of the reason for this is that Trine is located in the industrially rich region of the Tri-State area. With so many different companies in the region, this is a melting pot of opportunity, international and domestic, for Trine University students. Trine is also just 40 minutes away from Fort Wayne, the second largest city in Indiana. Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Indianapolis are just a three-hour drive away from the university, offering convenient excursions for food, culture, transportation and leisure. Such an environment makes Angola, Indiana, a very calm and peaceful city, devoid of most distractions from studies while still allowing students to kick back and relax over the weekends.
