Other Registration Info:

  1. Register for VIP on myPurdue
  2. Click the Teams tab to learn more about each team.
  3. Each registered student is expected to participate in 10 Professional Development (PD) activities during the semester. The course-wide lecture meets more weeks, and each week counts as one "PD credit", so you should plan to attend the lecture, although there are other opportunities to earn credits, so you do not have to be there every week.
  4. Each team will meet weekly, in addition to the course-wide lecture. Some teams have an established meeting time as shown in myPurdue, and others will schedule the meeting based on member availability.
  5. A table of the CRNs for the Spring 2020 teams can be found here.

MyPurdue Registration Walkthrough

In myPurdue, go to Registration > Add or Drop Classes. Do not use Scheduling Assistant.

Using ENGR 27920 as an example, this is how you find out the CRN for the lecture and the specific VIP team you are interested in joining. The process for ENGR 37920 and ENGR 47920 are similar. If, for example, you are interested in the 'Data Analytics for Smart Cities' as a sophomore, you would enroll in CRN 17370 for the team.



Each team has different CRNs for the sophomore, junior, and senior level courses, but the teams are linked (cross-listed). The team limit includes all of the cross-listed CRNS. In order to see how many spaces are available on the team, click the team CRN indicated by the arrow above.

Please note that although 4 of 5 spaces have been taken for the 27920 level course, overall the team has 4 of 8 spaces taken, so please make sure to view this detailed information to see if there is space remaining on a team for which you wish to register.
