Does Purdue offer good research opportunities?

Hey everyone! I'm a high school junior who wants to major in computer engineering. I've heard good things about Purdue, but I'm wondering if it's considered a research university and what kind of research opportunities they offer at the undergraduate level. Can anyone provide me with some insights? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! You'll be happy to hear that Purdue University is indeed well-known for its strong research opportunities, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields like computer engineering. In fact, it's classified as a R1 Doctoral University, which means it has the highest level of research activity.

Many of my friends' children have had great experiences with research opportunities at Purdue. The university has several dedicated research centers, including the Center for Resilient Infrastructures, Systems, and Processes (CRISP) and the Center for Science of Information (CSoI). As an undergraduate, getting involved in research can provide you with valuable experience, connections, and potential recommendation letters for future endeavors.

I would recommend checking out Purdue's website and contacting the computer engineering department to learn about specific research opportunities for undergraduates. Enjoy your college search journey and best of luck!
