- About Trine
There’s a time and place for thinking and doing. We make both happen at Trine University. Founded in 1884, Trine is known for rigorous academic programs, exceptional faculty, and hands-on experiences that lead to real-world, skill-based knowledge.
The results are phenomenal. The rate at which Trine students find work related to their majors within six months of graduation — at 92 percent — is amazing.
Trine is a private, non-denominational institution that grants associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in more than 35 programs on campus, online, and at regional education centers. With 2,465 students, small class sizes ensure one-on-one attention with faculty who bring their own workplace experience into the classroom. The focus is on active participation through more than 60 student organizations, competitive intercollegiate athletics, and extensive co-op and internship opportunities. Plus, you’ll find Trine's nationally recognized education affordable. In 2012, 98 percent of students received $20 million in institutional aid in the form of grants and scholarships.
U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review ranks Trine among the Midwest’s Best Colleges in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
