Message From the Acting Head

As the first signs of the spring season start to hit our lovely campus here at Purdue, I find myself looking forward to what is to come and I am filled with a great sense of pride. With spring comes the reminder that the semester - and the college careers for many of our students - is just a handful of weeks away from coming to a close.

Accessing Transportation

Study abroad opportunities offer students a unique opportunity to not only experience differences in culture, but how those differences affect engineering and design. One of the most popular study abroad opportunities offered at the Lyles School of Civil Engineering is the two-week 21st Century European Transportation course led by Darcy Bullock, the Lyles Family Professor of Civil Engineering.

Babies Kick Up Cloud of Dust

The dust particles infants kick up while crawling across the floor could be more harmful to them than we realize, Purdue University researchers say.

Senior Design

Through their involvement with real-world projects, Purdue civil engineering seniors take their education beyond the classroom and into a professional setting.

Working Toward More Equitable Transit

Toward the end of his second semester in first-year engineering, Ben O'Brien read a book that would change the course of his life. O'Brien came to Purdue from Nebraska with the intent to study aerospace engineering. In high school, he'd excelled in STEM but he also developed a passion for social justice.

Undergraduate Research

The Lyles School of Civil Engineering's commitment to educate and prepare undergraduates - both on campus and around the world - helps to extend giant leaps far beyond what is taught in the classroom.

View From the Lab

Undergraduate students in the Lyles School of Civil Engineering have the opportunity to focus their studies in one of nine academic engineering specialties. State-of-the-art lab facilities and engaging study lounges enhance both education and the discovery process.

Building a Career Abroad

Wanting to make a difference in the world, Emily Foote (BSCE '10, MSBCM '18) took a chance on engineering. That chance landed her in Queensland, Australia.
