Purdue University- Admissions, Courses, Fees, and More
Basic Information:
Purdue University, located in West Lafayette, Indiana, is the flagship university of the six-campus Purdue University system. Purdue 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 six instructors and 39 students. Today, Purdue is a member of the Big Ten Conference, and is a well known world-class research institution. Purdue enrolls the second largest student body of any university in Indiana as well as the fourth largest international student population of any university in the United States.

Purdue offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in over 211 major areas of study, and is well known for its competitive engineering curricula. The university has also been highly influential in America's history of aviation, having established the first college credit offered in flight training, the first four-year bachelor's degree in aviation, and the first university airport (Purdue University Airport). Purdue's aviation technology program remains one of the most competitive aviation-specific programs in the world. In the mid-20th century, Purdue's aviation program expanded to encompass advanced spaceflight technology giving rise to Purdue's nickname, Cradle of Astronauts. Twenty-three Purdue graduates have gone on to become astronauts, including Gus Grissom (one of the original Mercury Seven astronauts), Neil Armstrong (the first person to walk on the moon), and Eugene Cernan (the most recent person to walk on the moon).

Undergraduate Programs:
The Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering offers an undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering. Training to be a Purdue biomedical engineer requires engineering science, analysis, and design knowledge and skills applied within the context of biological and medical conditions in order to improve human health. Students enjoy the contemporary, state-of-the-art building that houses BME undergraduate classrooms and research laboratories, media rooms, and faculty, staff, and student services offices.

The world has tremendous need for solutions to problems related to the environment, energy, health, food, and sustainability. Biological systems are related to or at the heart of all of these issues. A biological engineer learns to design and analyze biological systems to develop innovative and practical solutions. B.S. graduates are well prepared for careers in the food industry, pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, and bioprocessing as well as entrance into graduate or medical school. Students may select a major and plan of study within biological engineering that is tailored to their specific career goals. The areas of focus include: Bioprocess engineering and bioenergy engineering; Cellular and biomolecular engineering; Food process engineering; and Pharmaceutical process engineering

The Department of Biological Sciences at Purdue encourages students to get involved in research during their undergraduate career. Undergraduate research is one of the best things a student can do to enrich a Purdue Biology degree. It provides a strong background for classes, a chance to interact with leading researchers every day, and an invaluable understanding of how science happens.

Undergraduate tuition: $8893/year in-state; $27,061/year out-of-state. Financial aid is available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study. Students should complete the FAFSA to be eligible for aid.

Graduate Programs:
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields, and the knowledge and skills of persons with advanced degrees are in high demand. At the Weldon School, students will find highly interdisciplinary research and teaching that spans contemporary biomedical engineering. The master’s and doctoral-level programs at Purdue University comprise faculty and laboratories from multiple entities, including the Purdue College of Engineering, College of Science, and School of Veterinary Medicine on the West Lafayette campus, as well as the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology and Indiana University School of Medicine on the Indiana University-Purdue University campus in Indianapolis. The combined faculty, staff, and facilities of the two campuses offer unparalleled resources and opportunities for graduate students.

The Purdue University Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering is consistently ranked among the top in the nation. In fact, the graduate program has been ranked #1 by US News & World Report for the fifth consecutive year. Purdue University has master’s and PhD programs in the following areas of specialization: Agricultural and Biological Engineering; Agricultural Systems Management; Biological Engineering and Technology; Biological and Food Process Engineering; Ecological Sciences and Engineering; and Fluid Power (Engineering).

Graduate study in Biological Sciences at Purdue University is multi-disciplinary, offering a wide variety of choices for doctorate and masters degrees. Major research groups exist in the fields of Development and Disease, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and Molecular Biosciences. Areas of research include biology education research; cancer biology; developmental neurobiology; cell biology; ecology and conservation biology; genetics, genomics and computational biology; microbiology; molecular pathogenesis; physiology and behavior; plant biology and bioenergy; structural biology and biophysics. A major advisor may be selected in any of these areas. In addition, several interdisciplinary programs also are available in conjunction with other departments and divisions within the University. We therefore welcome applicants from different disciplines such as chemistry, physics and related fields as well as students from traditional biological backgrounds.

The path to an exciting academic or industrial career in biomedical science begins here with Purdue’s Department of Basic Medical Sciences. The Department of Basic Medical Sciences (BMS) combines the personal attention of a small department, with a unique breadth of training. BMS offers graduate study leading toward a master’s degree and a doctoral degree. The department also offers a combined degree/dual degree option for students in one the of DVM professional curriculum. BMS has active research programs in the following areas: Cancer biology; Muscolo-skeletal biomechanics and skeletal adaptation; Neural development, mechanisms of injury and regeneration; Tissue dynamic spectroscopy; and Cellular and molecular screening and high throughput analysis of cell function.

The Biomedical Sciences Interdisciplinary Graduate Program is aimed at training scientists with an interest in biomedical sciences. This interdisciplinary graduate training program is administered jointly between the School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM) and the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering. This unique Ph.D. program fills a need for a medically-oriented program for scientists who wish to undertake careers in such areas as implantable medical devices, natural biomaterials, tissue engineered therapies, drug delivery strategies, and diagnostic sensors. This program emphasizes biomedical approaches to diagnose and treat human diseases. Two signature areas of this program are biomedical research in spinal cord injury and nanomedicine approaches to cancer and other diseases. Applicants should have at least a bachelor’s degree. The minimum requirements for GRE (preferably higher since this program is very competitive) are verbal: 550; and quantitative: 700. Applicants whose native language is not English must achieve a TOEFL score of at least 550 (paper version) or 213 (computer version) or writing-18, speaking-18, listening-14, reading-19, total-77 (Internet version). Interest in the IBSC Ph.D. track by students with backgrounds in fields such as biology, biochemistry, chemistry, biophysics, physics, computer science, and pharmaceutical sciences is anticipated and encouraged. Students interested in biomedical engineering who have undergraduate or graduate degrees in engineering should apply directly to the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering.

Graduate tuition: $8893/year in-state; $27,061/year out-of-state. Financial aid is available to PhD students in the form of research and teaching assistantships.
