Graduate Research Symposium

The 2023 Symposium was held on August 17-18. Thank you to the industrial representatives, oral and poster presenters, and all other attendees for another successful Symposium!

The GSO Graduate Research Symposium is an annual event that facilitates interaction of graduate students with faculty and industrial representatives through research talks, poster presentations and networking events. The symposium also serves as an introduction to the department's research portfolio for incoming first year graduate students. Due to COVID-19, the symposium was conducted virtually in 2021, but returned to a fully in-person event in 2022.

The College of Engineering at Purdue University was recently ranked 4th in the US News engineering graduate program rankings. Further, many faculty members in the Chemical Engineering department maintain active collaborations with industry. As a result, the symposium is attended by industry representatives from many different companies seeking to hire graduate students for industry positions, including the following in the recent past:

  • Clariant Corp.
  • Corteva Agriscience
  • AbbVie
  • Evonik
  • Air Products
  • Eli Lilly
  • ExxonMobil
  • Dow Chemical Company
  • Proctor and Gamble
  • Phillips 66
  • Chevron
  • 3M
  • Amyris

The next Graduate Research Symposium will be conducted in August of 2024. Please check back nearer to the date for any updates.
