Tour the Martin C. Jischke Hall of Biomedical Engineering

If you're going to be on campus, we hope you'll stop by and visit our facilities. We may be biased, but we think the Martin C. Jischke Hall of Biomedical Engineering (MJIS) (pronounced em-jis) is the most beautiful building on campus! Come and see for yourself why we love teaching, working, and studying here.

We provide daily building tours Monday through Friday at 1:30 PM while school is in session, except during finals weeks. Summer tours are by appointment. Tours last approximately 20-30 minutes. While everyone is welcome, tours are geared for prospective students and their families. Your guide will be a current Weldon School student who will give you a student's perspective of our program; questions are welcome. No appointment is necessary for a tour; simply show up and meet us at MJIS 1021.

Things you will see on the tour include:

  • Atrium
  • Academic Services Wing
  • Classrooms
  • DeFord Ayres Computer Lab
  • A mural of Dr. Leslie Geddes, considered to be the father of biomedical engineering at Purdue.
  • Biomolecules and Biomechanics Lab
  • Bioinstrumentation and Biotransport Lab
  • Senior Design Lab

Depending upon the time of year you visit, students may be working in the labs. Feel free to approach them and ask what they are working on.
