The School of Engineering at Purdue University Northwest has opened the PNW Engineering Design Studio, featuring state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, offering a new level of experience in design and innovation for engineering students.

The 8,000-square-foot studio provides creation, assembly, and maker spaces that will serve student competition and senior design project teams, as well as provide support for teaching and experiential learning across the PNW School of Engineering. In addition, the PNW Design Studio will bring together engineering students and faculty and help to facilitate work on projects with external stakeholders in the community, industry, Northwest Indiana, and neighboring states.

“The programs offered in and supported by this building will give students the skills needed to be successful in the working world – collaboration, working in cross-disciplinary teams, learning new tools and methods for the development and presentation of ideas, and ultimately the creation of innovative products and services,” according to Dietmar Rempfer, director of the School of Engineering.

The Engineering Design Studio was envisioned by Purdue University to impact the lives of students while expanding entrepreneurial opportunities in the region, combining both benefits into a single innovative hub, giving students valuable hands-on experience, and aiding in developing engineers who can turn ideas into actions and then into reality.
