Indiana university to open campus in Peoria

A small private university in Indiana plans to open a branch campus in Arizona and offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering.

Angola-based Trine University expects to have its first sit-down classes at its new campus in the west Phoenix suburb of Peoria early next year. The university is already enrolling students for online classes.

Trine is locating its offices in a 17,000-square-foot building formerly occupied by Western International University. Other course offerings are expected.

Trine said in Wednesday’s announcement that it expects to have nearly 200 students at the Peoria campus during the spring 2013 semester and could have more than 1,200 students by its third year.
