Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Purdue University College of Science. I am delighted that you are interested in our programs, and I welcome you to join us in making scientific breakthroughs that move the world forward.

I also welcome you to learn more about Purdue Science academics and opportunities, your many options for careers in science, and all about Purdue student life.

All of us at the College of Science look forward to welcoming you to the Boilermaker family. To get a sense of what it is really like to be here, there is no substitute for a visit to campus. Our recruiting office would love to host you, and our current students very much want to meet you and show you around. I also hope to meet you at a future Meet the Dean event.
