1 Purdue University-Main Campus West Lafayette, IN

School of Mechanical Engineering

Can a re-engineered football helmet prevent brain damage? How might portable, 3-D technology contribute to crime scene investigations? The inquisitive minds at Purdue ponder these questions and a multitude of others as they apply their knowledge to real-life problems. Perhaps fitting of a university hosting the largest academic propulsion lab in the world (the 24-acre Maurice J. Zucrow Laboratories), Purdue encourages far-reaching experiences. Forty percent of mechanical engineering undergrads participate in a global education experience with international partner institutions. Skills get put to the test on such projects as developing a water harvesting system in Tanzania or fabricating prosthetics for amputees in Guatemala. Back on campus, the fact that 39 percent of enrolled undergrads are international further contributes to Purdue’s global vibe. By graduation, 90 percent of mechanical engineering seniors have 4-18 months of industrial experience. Such training pays off on the job market to the tune of a $62,838 average starting salary!
