Tour the Martin C. Jischke Hall of Biomedical Engineering

Please note that due to COVID-19 and the Protect Purdue Initiative, we are unable to host on-campus tours at this time. If you are interested in general Purdue University tours, please contact the Office of Admissions.

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 learning here.

If you are a future student, to make the most of your day we suggest that you first take in a morning Admissions Presentation and Tour followed by an 11:30 Engineering Information Session. You'll need to register for both of those sessions on the Office of Future Engineers Campus Visit Programs page.

We typically  provide daily tours of our building Monday through Friday at 1:30 PM while school is in session, except during finals weeks, but these are on pause due to COVID-19 building restrictions. No appointment is necessary for this tour; simply show up and meet us at MJIS 1021. Tours last approximately 20-30 minutes. While everyone is welcome, tours are geared for future students and their families. Your guide will be a current student who will give you a student's perspective of our program; questions are welcome. Summer tours are by appointment. Please feel free to contact us at WeldonBMEUndergrad@purdue.edu to confirm availability.

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
