Research and Innovation

Construction Engineers – shaping the world around us. It is rarely true that one chosen path in life can have such an enormous impact on the lives of thousands, even millions of people, yet that is exactly what a major in Construction Engineering at Purdue does for its graduates.

Every undergraduate is given three terms of in-the-field experience before graduation, preparing them for the real world and giving them an advantage in the job market. These terms are tailored to the students’ areas of concentration and research specialties. Each student works with our faculty members to present final projects before graduation. Our faculty specializes in over two dozen research areas, from Nanoconstruction to International Construction, so that by the time a student leaves our program, he/she has had ample opportunities to explore every aspect of their Construction Engineering degree.
