Would you say Purdue is a research university?

Hi everyone, I'm really interested in research and considering applying to Purdue. Would you classify Purdue as a research university or more of a teaching-focused university? Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Hi there! I can definitely understand your interest in research, as it can be such an enriching experience during your college years. I'm happy to share that Purdue is indeed considered a research university. It's classified as an R1 institution, which means it is among the top tier of research-focused universities in the United States.

Other than great engineering programs, Purdue is known for its wide range of research opportunities and facilities for undergraduates. My own child has been able to participate in research projects from their freshman year. They found it both educational and enjoyable.

Although Purdue has a focus on research, it doesn't mean teaching takes a back seat. Many of their professors are passionate about teaching, and they genuinely care about undergraduate education.

Good luck with your college search, and I hope you find the research opportunities you're looking for!
