The Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs (OIGP) was established in 2004 to promote and facilitate cross-disciplinary research at Purdue.  OIGP houses 17 interdisciplinary programs at Purdue University, including Ecological Sciences and Engineering (ESE).  ESE students are part of both an interdisciplinary community and an academic department, gaining both depth and breadth in their students while collaborating across many fields.  OIGP hosts events that are open to the broader campus community.  These include the Social Justice Seminar Series each spring and fall, and the Spring Reception at the end of each spring semester to celebrate interdisciplinary graduate student research.

Environmental Engineering is the conscientious pursuit of a sustainable future. As the world continues to move forward, it is the environmental engineer’s task to keep up with the pace of progress, while outrunning the threat of environmental negligence. Purdue Environmental and Ecological Engineering has risen to the occasion. Our program empowers students and researchers to protect global sustainability by solving environmental challenges.


Purdue Agriculture is known around the world for groundbreaking multidisciplinary research that addresses society’s most pressing challenges. Agricultural Research and Graduate Education connects researchers with opportunity to enable world-changing discoveries in agriculture and life sciences.


The Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC) serves to coordinate, support and promote interdisciplinary research and education to address the challenges and complexities of climate change.


These are trying times for the environment. With climate change upon us, as well as a host of other concerns, such as population growth, aquatic invasive species, contaminated waters, and loss of natural habitat, the southern Lake Michigan region faces many challenges. Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant (IISG) uses research, outreach, and education to bring the latest science to Great Lakes communities and their residents. By connecting decision-makers with science, IISG helps strengthen and preserve ecosystems and communities in southern Lake Michigan and beyond.
