Hands-on learning is not theory at Trine. You are engaged in real-life projects. You explore new and emerging theories. You test conventional wisdom. You compete for national championships. You challenge yourself and the world around you as you prepare to shape the future. It's a Trine Thing.

Our curriculum focuses on practical problem solving and innovation. For example, Professor Dan Matthews' senior computer science course developed an online campground reservation system for nearby Pokagon State Park. Criminal Justice and Forensic Science majors have a crime scene lab on campus, including a new ballistics-comparison microscope and a new fiber-and-hair-comparison microscope to enhance their investigative skills. Internships add a real-world dimension to your education.

Our faculty are active scholars. They have written books (including The Art of Watching Films, Ultimately Fiction, Teaching Today's Health, Numerical Analysis via Derive) and they share their professional experiences inside—and outside—the classroom. They help you become effective communicators, critical thinkers and thoughtful analysts. Perhaps, that's why one-third of our faculty—more than twice the national average—were nominated by their students to Who's Who Among America's Teachers.
