Why Trine?

It’s easy to talk about excellence. But it’s another thing altogether to truly commit yourself to it each and every day. To live it. To inspire it in everything around you. At Trine University, this commitment to excellence has formed the bedrock of the experience we have provided for well over a century.

Few schools can say they’ve been getting it done at such a high level for over 130 years. We can.

Why Trine?

Confidence is what empowers us. It’s what moves us ahead in life. It’s what gives us the guts to go after really big goals and, ultimately, achieve them. And when you add unquestionable character to that kind of confidence, you’ve really got something. At Trine, that’s exactly what we do for you.

When you ask yourself, “Why Trine?” the answer is pretty simple. Excellence and high standards permeates everything we do. From our internationally acclaimed faculty, to our respected programs, to our pristine facilities. We expect the best out of our Students, so we equip them with the best in every facet of their Trine experience.

It's A Trine Thing. Defined

It's a Trine Thing sheds light on the Trine way, a level of quality and standard of excellence that goes above and beyond. Trine Things are our values, traits and points of distinction, our qualities and characteristics that set us apart. With so much to be proud of, we believe it's time to express these Things that truly make us Trine University. When it comes to our commitment to excellent service to you and the Trine way, there's no question... It's a Trine Thing.
