Undergraduate Students

Purdue University has one of the strongest engineering schools in the world, and our Materials Engineering students are first and foremost "Purdue Engineers." They share the same Freshman Engineering program as all other Engineering students at Purdue, before coming to the School of Materials Engineering in the sophomore year. The School is one of the smaller departments at Purdue, providing a nurturing environment with as much faculty contact as you care to use.
