Overview

Trine University's Academic Excellence is Nationally Recognized

In addition to being recognized in the 2014 edition of "US News and World Report" America's Best Colleges edition, Trine has been ranked among the best Midwestern baccalaureate colleges each year for the past eight years. "The Princeton Review" has named Trine a Best Midwestern College every year since 2008.

Coming in fall 2014 is a Doctor of Physical Therapy program, Trine's first doctoral degree.

Trine's student-faculty member ratio is 14:1 in a rigorous academic climate that is second to none. Students receive excellent instruction from professors trained at some of the country's most highly regarded universities.

Trine's challenging engineering program has led to success at multiple regional and national competitions. For six consecutive years, students have won national awards for design from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Students who took the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination in April 2013 exceeded the national average for passing the test. In spring 2013, Trine University hosted the American Society of Civil Engineers Great Lakes Region Student Conference and the Illinois-Indiana section of the American Society of Engeineerng Education meeting. Engineering programs in chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org).

Annually, Trine's chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association consistently captures a record number of awards at national competitions. The chapter brought home 30 awards at the 2013 regional competition, giving them the honor of heading to another national competition. Trine is one of the few undergraduate programs in the US to specialize in forensic and correctional psychology.

Trine University's academic programs are nationally recognized and accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, www.ncahlc.org. Its Franks School of Education is one of the smallest in the nation to meet the strict standards for accreditation by the National Council of Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), as well as those of the Indiana Department of Education/Division of Professional Standards. In addition, the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program in Trine's Ketner School of Business is accredited by the internationally recognized Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

The Trine Campus Delivers the Amenities and Excitement Expected from a Leading University

Trine's residential students enjoy an extraordinary campus experience. Resort-quality student apartments -- some of which overlook Trine's pristine, 18-hole Zollner Golf Course (site of the 2012 Women's NCAA Division III Golf National Championship) -- give students homes away from home, with the comfort of central living areas and semi-private bedrooms and baths. Each building has lounges with big-screen televisions, fireplaces, and small bistros, plus recreation areas with game tables. Trine students enjoy a unique dining experience provided by Bon Appetit, which prepares authentic and fresh meals made from scratch daily.

Students have free access to the Hornbacher Fitness Center and student lounges. The climate-controlled Keith E. Busse/Steel Dynamics Inc. Athletic and Recreation Center showcases a 200-meter indoor track and training spaces for tennis, baseball, and softball, as well as an area for intramural sports and recreation. The Zollner Athletic Stadium serves 5,000 fans with its upper-deck suites and patio, grandstand and concessions, while Trine athletes benefit from an expansive locker area and the Metal Technologies Health and Fitness Center, plus offices for coaches.

New fraternity buildings on campus demonstrate Trine University's flourishing Greek life. Kappa Sigma, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Phi Kappa Theta, and Delta Chi recently constructed stunning new homes.

The Trine chapter of Delta Chi fraternity has earned several President's Cups for overall superior performance and programming at its annual international convention. The President's Cup is the most prestigious award given to any Delta Chi chapter. The tradition of excellence vaults the university's Delta Chi chapter to the highest rank among chapters across the country.

Trine Offers the Resources and Support Necessary to Ensure that Students Find the Best Jobs

To ensure that Trine students find jobs and career opportunities, the Office of Career Services acts as a central information conduit between employers in need of the brightest new talent and graduates ready to venture into today's workforce. Trinecareers.org manages job and career opportunities for students and employers and allows registered students to post online resumes, while registered employers can access the resumes and enter their job offerings in a database. The office also hosts corporate recruiters for visits and arranges individual interviews with student job candidates.

Trine University career services assists with career planning and by providing individual and group instruction (workshops, educational programs, guest speakers) on topics including resume/cover letter writing, interviewing, business etiquette, individual portfolio development, job-search strategies and graduate school. Career services also facilitates networking opportunities such as career fairs, industry nights, mock interviews, referral interviews and job shadows to connect students with alumni and employers in their field.

Career services also continues to build relationships with employers who recruit Trine students for internship, co-operative education and full-time positions.

Faculty collaborative visits provide Trine faculty the opportunity to meet with internship and co-op supervisors to learn firsthand what educators can do to prepare students for their future careers.

Trine's Ketner School of Business boasts an overall 81 percent placement rating. The Allen School of Engineering & Technology had an overall placement of 95 percent. Depending upon the area of specialization, Trine engineering graduates earn nationally competitive starting salaries. The Jannen School of Arts & Sciences recorded a 90 percent placement rate.
