Overview

Trine University's Academic Excellence is Nationally Recognized

In addition to being recognized in the 2015 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 nine years. "The Princeton Review" has named Trine a Best Midwestern College each year since 2008.

Trine launched a Doctor of Physical Therapy program (trine.edu/DPT), its first doctoral degree, in fall 2014.

In winter 2015, Trine established the College of Engineering and Business, melding the collaborative learning experience for engineering and business students. Students partner on real projects for the private sector to promote understanding of how the two disciplines work together in industry.

Coming in fall 2015, the Franks School of Education will offer a dual licensure program in elementary education and special education for kindergarten through grade 6 (K-6). Students will earn a Bachelor of Science degree and be eligible for both a license in elementary education K-6 and a license in special education/mild intervention K-6.

Trine's student-faculty ratio is 13:1 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. Students demonstrate their knowledge and apply skills learned in the classroom when they complete capstone projects.

Trine's challenging engineering program has led to success at multiple regional and national competitions. For seven consecutive years, students have won national awards for design from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. 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 more awards at the 2014 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 -- 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 and fireplaces, plus recreation areas with game tables. Trine students enjoy a unique dining experience provided by Bon Appetit, which prepares authentic and fresh meals made daily from scratch.

Opening in fall 2015 are Reiners Residence Hall and Ford Hall. Reiners is a 170-bed, apartment-style residence hall featuring two-bedroom units. Ford Hall. home of the Ketner School of Business, will reopen after a full renovation, inside and out. Ford will boast technology-rich classrooms, the Rhoads Center for Entrepreneurship and a design that models the business world. This enhanced learning environment will also offer a laboratory with up-to-the-minute information about stocks being traded and other business news.

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 Students Land the Best Jobs

Trine is proud of its 99.7 percent graduate employment rate that tops the national average of 75.6 percent. The rate means 99.7 percent of 2014 graduates were employed or in graduate school within six months of graduating.

To ensure that Trine students find top career opportunities, the Office of Career Services serves as a central information conduit between employers seeking the brightest new talent and graduates prepared to succeed in today's workforce. Trinecareers.org manages job and career opportunities for students and employers and allows registered students to post online resumes, while nearly 3,000 registered employers can access the resumes and enter their job offerings. The office also hosts corporate recruiters for visits and arranges individual interviews with student job candidates.

The Career Services team also assists with career planning and provides 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 searches. 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.

In addition, Career Services continues to build relationships with employers who recruit Trine students for internship and co-operative education.

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