Northwestern Polytechnic University
Established in 1984, The University is first and foremost an institution of learning and teaching, committed to serving the needs of society and involved in the academic and civic communities of which it is a part. To this end the University is a member of the Fremont and San Jose Chambers of Commerce. NPU attends local job fairs and works with local businesses to provide job opportunities for their students. The University also provides space for meetings of various local government bodies and businesses. Northwestern Polytechnic University’s mission is to provide a high-tech learning environment that motivates learners to pursue intellectual growth and professional development, and to prepare hi-tech professionals and global leaders. NPU accomplishes this with a student-centred educational philosophy, an object-oriented dynamic curriculum, a digital corporate-like environment, highly skilled practitioner faculty members, and performance-based learning. NPU provides a unique educational culture and learning environment for students because NPU has been able to attract a strong pool of talented individuals from Silicon Valley to teach, conduct research, and provide student services. The abundance of talent and technical resources in Silicon Valley has also provided NPU with a unique student body. A significant percentage of the student population already works in high-tech industries, which makes the teaching and learning even more interesting.
