WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University and Trimble are establishing the Trimble Technology Lab at Purdue, focused on teaching and research for construction management technology.

The lab is hosted by the School of Construction Management Technology within the Purdue Polytechnic Institute and will bring Trimble’s industry-leading construction technologies into a dedicated learning environment for Purdue students to learn and innovate. 

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. 

Trimble’s lab joins other corporate-sponsored labs that provide Purdue students and researchers access to leading technologies in their industries. 

“The Trimble Technology Lab will empower Purdue students with the skills and expertise required to become front-runners in the realm of industry technology,” said H. Nicholas Dib, an associate professor in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute who will help oversee the new lab. “This collaboration will support the holistic transformation of education, where technology lies at the very heart of the curriculum.”

The lab will include a broad range of Trimble’s geospatial and construction solutions and advanced software solutions.
