The lab is expected to open in early 2024 and will be part of the institute’s evolving footprint at Dudley Hall and Lambertus Hall. The connected buildings, which opened in early 2023, house a mix of Polytechnic and College of Engineering labs, with the goal of fostering an atmosphere of collaboration among students from different majors and departments.
The lab will include a range of Trimble’s geospatial and construction solutions and advanced software solutions.
“Purdue has a strong reputation as a leader in applied construction education,” said Amy Northcutt, Director of Education and Outreach at Trimble. “The university’s construction management program offers an innovative curriculum that emphasizes hands-on learning and prepares students for a variety of construction careers. Trimble is confident that our collaboration with Purdue to establish this Trimble Technology Lab will have a significant impact in preparing students for their future careers.”
