College of Engineering and Business

In 2015, Trine University announced the creation of the College of Engineering and Business in a nod toward today’s collaboration between professional engineers and business leaders. The Allen School of Engineering and Technology and the Ketner School of Business were moved under the College of Engineering and Business. Students were not effected by this change and will benefit from the enhanced collaboration between the programs.
