EAPS 37500:  Prosperity of the 20th century was based on abundant and cheap energy; during the 21st century we will be faced with difficult challenges. Our society will face higher energy prices, decline of petroleum based fuels supplies, increased environmental effects of fossil fuels usage, and the challenge of solving the technological problems of developing alternative fuels. This course will review the structure, economics, and geopolitical issues faced by fossil fuel industries and the mitigation strategies that will be needed to change to low fossil fuel use society based on low polluting renewable energy sources.

 EAPS 32700: This course will examine the broad problems of climate change by examining the relationship between science, politics, and society by using climate change as a lens through which to examine larger issues. Students will be encouraged to identify similar themes in their own experiences as emerging scientists, engineers and global leaders. Adequate preparation to write essays and perform basic arithmetic calculations needed. Prior knowledge of climate change science is not necessary.

 POL 32700: Analysis and assessment of the nature of global environmentalism, its connections with other new social movements, and its impact on domestic and international politics worldwide, with particular attention to green political parties and nongovernmental organizations


During the 2019-2020 academic year, the Actuarial Science program will be a participant in the Data Mine.  The Data Mine is a Learning Community that introduces students to Data Science and allows students to explore the intersection of Data Science and their major.  Obviously, there is a huge intersection between Actuarial Science and Data Science.  During the next three weeks, we will hold information sessions for interested students.   6pm in the C102 Lounge in Hillenbrand Hall on Thursday, September 20 or Wednesday, September 26 or Tuesday, October 2.
The actuarial portion of the Learning Community will consist of 50 students (out of 800) who will all live in Hillenbrand Hall.  Our 50 students will be on a floor of Hillenbrand Hall together.  (To participate in this Learning Community, you must live in Hillenbrand Hall next year.) We are targeting current freshman (who will be sophomores) next year for the actuarial portion of the Data Mine, but it is also open to current sophomores or juniors if you are interested. Students will take one or two actuarial science classes together each semester.  Additionally, we will have a two or three hours of courses each semester that will cover data science for actuarial students. These course will involve working with real data provided by local insurance companies.  Additionally, we anticipate you will also interact directly with actuaries from the companies providing the data.   There will also be opportunities to interact with leaders in the Data Science field, practicing actuaries who use Data Science on a regular basis, and the faculty from the Actuarial Program.

The Data Mine: Part of the Integrative Data Science Initiative Over 18 living, learning communities that take shared courses and collaborate on data-driven research projects The Data Mine incorporates the successful elements of learning communities. It blends learning, research, and professional development. In 2019-20, The Data Mine will have almost 800 students, organized into roughly 18 cohorts, ranging from 23-100 students each, all living in Hillenbrand Hall. Renovations include on-site faculty office hours, and collaboration spaces for student work. Undergraduate students from all years (first-year through senior year) are welcome to participate. See reverse side for brief descriptions of The Data Mine Learning Communities. Important Dates October 1: Application will go live: http://www.purdue.edu/lc/application • Rolling placement process • Decisions within 10 business days November 30: Majority of the placements are expected to be completed by Thanksgiving. January 31: Application for current (continuing) students closes. (We strongly encourage students to apply as early as possible during the fall semester.) All participating students must contract for a housing space in Hillenbrand Hall.

Systems Certificates - Purdue Systems Collaboratory is offering two certificates in Fall 2018 (awaiting final ICHE processing)

  • Certificate in Systems for undergraduate students
  • Graduate Certificate in Systems suited for graduate students or continuing education professionals

The programs that are designed for undergraduate and graduate students across all majors are a response to the need for a new generation of leaders with holistic perspective, who can address the most challenging and complex problems of today’s societies. Purdue graduates have continuously made technological breakthroughs, developed innovative products, created timeless designs, and discovered better ways to feed the world. It is time to pioneer the education of scientists, economists, engineers, designers, and humanitarians who are also systems thinkers; future leaders who can see the hidden interconnections between different elements of a system and turn the spotlight on the role of humans in these systems.

Both certificate programs are administered through the Office of the Provost and is governed by the PSC Educational Committee representing different Purdue colleges. Students must maintain a C- or higher in certificate-related courses. Upon completion of certificate and Purdue degree requirements, students will receive an official certificate, which is also recorded on their academic transcript. The three SYS courses in the programs had been previously offered cross-listed in the different variations between Fall 2014 and Spring 2018. If a student has completed any of these courses, the course can be counted towards fulfillment of the certificate requirements. For the list of the course details click here.


There is now a Advance Credit exam for CS 15900 which could meet the College of Science computing requirement.   If you are interested and you are aware that students who typically succeed at passing the exam, have at least 3 months of experience in the C programming language, (experience in related programming languages will not be sufficient) - you should contact your academic advisor for more information.


PHYS 172 D is a first semester calculus-based physics course that is taught in an online format at Purdue University. The course meets the same requirements as PHYS 172 and can be taken in place of the face-to-face PHYS 172 course. It will use the same text as the face-to-face version of PHYS 172, but various course materials – lectures, homework, labs, recitations, and exams will be different from the face-to-face course. All of the course materials will be distributed online through Blackboard Learn website for the course.


Text reminders via BoilerConnect (appointment reminders, etc.) will start pulling from a new area in MyPurdue.  If you wish to continue to received texts from your advisor, the Registrar, etc.  PLEASE update your cell phone: Students can log into the myPurdue Portal;  click on Academics and then Personal Information to add their cell phone.


NOTE:  Spring 2017 and forward, ENGL 211 at Ivy Tech will NOT be equivalent to ENGL 42100 at Purdue.

Purdue Systems Collaboratory -  Boshra Afra, PhD, Research and Education Director, Purdue Systems Collaboratory – presenting on Purdue Systems Collaboratory Certificate Program

  • New certificate program
  • Simple—systems like following a recipe
  • Complicated—systems like sending a rocket to the moon—a lot of coordination within the system
  • Learn lessons and come up with algorithms
    • Complex systems—systems that most importantly are hard to predict
    • Have emerging behavior
    • They involve a lot of interconnected elements
    • They have tipping points—financial crisis, revolutions—at a sudden event they collapse-hard to predict
    • When you have complex systems, there is a new set of problems
    • All of these problems require people to come from different areas
    • These are the problems that one field or one area of expertise will not come up with the solutions.
    • How system thinking is about bringing art & science together
    • Having these skills help people have a better comprehension about the work around them and work with people from different backgrounds.
    • There are a lot of companies looking for this new level of skills
    • In terms of research there is a gap with people with these types of skills
    • We have different offerings, different programs
      • Minimum required 15 credit units
      • Under the Office of Provost
      • Two are now in a university core curriculum
      • Required to do two selective courses
      • Between fall 2014 and last semester we had over 300 students take the course
      • Parallel program at graduate level.
      • Similar three courses
      • No pre-reqs for the required courses
      • As demand grows we can offer more frequent courses
      • Student would come to Purdue Systems Collaboratory for the admissions process.  The auditing part comes back to us. When they satisfy the 15 credit units we will report back to the Office of the Provost. We have faculty members from different colleges who oversee the educational offerings.  Every year we reach out to the different colleges to make sure these courses are relevant.
      • Some course names have slightly changed. If a student has already taken some of these courses, we can help them figure it out.

Next Generation Hoosier Scholarships are for Indiana residents who promise to teach in Indiana in an eligible school – they get $7500/year for four years. If they don’t teach or leave before the five years, they have to repay the loan. Only 200 students state-wide are awarded this annually.

TEACH Grants are federally funded. They provide up to $4,000 annually for students who plan to teach in a high-need field in an under-resourced and under-served school/community and stay in teaching for at least four years. Like the prior grant, it converts to a loan if the person doesn’t fulfill the obligations.


College of Science has recently approved study abroad exchange with Bristol in the UK.  There is the possiblity of math coursework through this university if you go for the semester.  Please see a counselor in the Study Abroad Office in Young Hall 105.
