News Release

Hammond, Ind. — Purdue University Calumet will introduce two graduate engineering degree programs in January.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education recently granted Purdue Calumet approval to offer Master of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering and in Electrical and Computer Engineering effective with the upcoming spring semester. Classes begin Jan. 12.

Research facility learning opportunities

Students enrolled in these new programs will engage in learning opportunities directed by faculty within such Purdue Calumet campus research facilities as the Energy Efficiency & Reliability Center, Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation, and Purdue University Calumet Water Institute.

These facilities enable research and development activities including advancing technology in energy efficiency, reliability, utilization and processes. Virtual reality with simulation technologies and application of simulation and visualization technologies to business, healthcare, and industry and community also can be explored, as well as applications of water quality monitoring, analysis and treatment.
