The Purdue University was founded on May 6, 1869, as a land-grant university when the Indiana General Assembly, taking advantage of the Morrill Act, accepted a donation of land and money from Lafayette businessman John Purdue to establish a college of science, technology, and agriculture in his name.  The first classes were held on September 16, 1874, with three buildings, six instructors, and 39 students. Today, Purdue enrolls the second largest student body of any university in Indiana and has one of the largest international student populations of any public university in the United States.

Purdue University, located in West Lafayette, Indiana, U.S., is the flagship university of the six-campus Purdue University System. The university's newly constructed $400 million Discovery Park and Purdue Research Park are both home to nearly 200 medical, biotechnology, and nanotechnology laboratories and companies. Purdue was the first university globally to have ever offered an aeronautics program. Purdue University offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in over 200 major areas of study.

Purdue University has been highly influential in America's history of aviation, and Purdue's aviation technology and aeronautical engineering programs remain among the highest rated and most competitive in the world. Purdue established the first college credit offered in flight training, the first four-year bachelor's degree in aviation, and the first university airport. In the mid-20th century, Purdue University aviation program expanded to encompass advanced spaceflight technology giving rise to Purdue's nickname, Cradle of Astronauts. Twenty-two Purdue graduates have gone on to become astronauts, including Gus Grissom Neil Armstrong and Eugene Cernan.

Purdue University is well known for its diverse majors in aerospace. The Purdue University Airport was the first university owned airport in the United States.

The school is currently working with National Aeronautics and Space Administration and International Civil Aviation Organization to develop the next generation air traffic control system that will eventually replace current technology around the world. The school is backed by numerous corporations such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Pratt & Whitney and Timco and is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration for its instruction and certification of air traffic control trainees. In addition, the school is one of the only institutions in the country that offers American Association of Airport Executives certification for the management of airports.

In 2010, Purdue University received a $1.35 million grant from the United States Air Force to develop alternative fuels and test aircraft engines at a new facility. The National Test Facility for Fuels and Propulsion expected to open late 2010 or early 2011 will be located at the Purdue University Airport. This project will conduct research into fuel-sustainability and emissions data. The objective of this research is to have 10% biofuel usage in aircrafts by 2017. J. Clifford Turpin, from the class of 1908, was the first Purdue graduate to become an aviator, and received flight instruction from Orville Wright. In 1919 George W.
