Graduate students in the Purdue University College of Science receive tremendous opportunities for full science immersion.
While many universities offer “beyond the classroom” experiences, Purdue College of Science graduate students have the chance to be a part of history.
Some examples, Physics graduate students were among the Purdue team at CERN that helped in experiments that led to a particle discovery most believe to be the Higgs boson. While Geneva is quite a distance from West Lafayette, graduate students in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences went further east to study climate change. For years, EAPS teams have been visiting Kyrgyzstan, a former Soviet Union country known for it’s glacial flows and majestic mountains. Kyrgyzstan’s glaciers give clues to patterns in climate. Climate change is one of science’s most pressing issues and Purdue graduate students are there to fuel research and help come up with solutions.
On campus, graduate students have access to cutting edge laboratory equipment and facilities. Chemistry’s Wetherill Hall is a national landmark while Biological Sciences’ Bindley Bioscience Center and Lawson Computer Science Building are two of Purdue’s newest buildings. The new Drug Discovery Building will add to the College of Science’s already impressive roster of facilities in 2014.
