Ranked #9 in Graduate Computer Engineering by US News

Computer Engineering, within the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is a world-class PhD program. Computer Engineering is one of the largest areas in the department, both in terms of its faculty size (33 tenure-track and tenured) and its graduate student population—126 CE students, including 82 PhD students. Distinct from many computer engineering areas at peer institutions, Purdue Computer Engineering is very broad, covering all levels of the hardware and software stack, from architecture and embedded systems at the bottom to artificial intelligence and machine learning at the top. Indeed, Purdue Computer Engineering’s breadth is comparable to many computer science departments.

Computer science and computer engineering graduates are welcome to apply.

Our faculty and PhD students tackle compelling research problems in cutting-edge topics, including Big Data, cloud computing, IoT, and machine learning. Our faculty and students regularly publish in the top, highly-competitive venues in computer science and engineering, such as AAAI, CVPR, Sigcomm, Mobicom, ISCA, ASPLOS, SOSP, PLDI, POPL, CHI, DSN, Mobisys, Sigmetrics, Info Vis, ISLPED, and Security & Privacy. Our research is funded by prestigious sponsors including NSF, DARPA, DoE, DoD, DHS, Google, Microsoft, AT&T, SRC, Intel, and others (i.e., our PhD students have well-funded research assistantships). Our PhD graduates are placed in top-notch positions in industrial research and development, and academia.
