Purdue Research Park of Southeast Indiana


In May 2006, Purdue University officials announced plans for a new technology park and expanded academic programming in New Albany. The 44-acre Purdue Research Park of Southeast Indiana in New Albany (download our brochure) is located on IN-311 (Charlestown Rd.) adjacent to I-265 on prime land donated by the Shine family, founders and owners of electronic interconnect manufacturer Samtec Inc. This park’s flagship incubator, the 44,000-square-foot Purdue Technology Center of Southeast Indiana, opened in the fall of 2008.

The center contains 18,000 square feet of business incubator offices, which connects companies with Purdue resources and assists them in implementing state-of-the art technologies. As they grow, the companies will have an opportunity to move into the adjacent technology park.

Purdue Polytechnic New Albany uses the remaining space for classrooms, labs and faculty offices, and supports the college's four new bachelor degree programs.
