Description of the video:
We’re standing in the School of Science
Engineering and Lab building, one of two Purdue
degree-granting schools at IUPUI.
8 of their programs offer a Purdue degree,
and one an IU degree.
Students at the School of Science really benefit
from our location in downtown Indianapolis
with shadowing, volunteering, and internship
opportunities all around the city.
Full-time and adjunct faculty are experts
in their field, and bring all of their knowledge
into the classroom.
Imagine your forensics class being taught
by the Director of Indiana State Crime lab.
That’s the kind of expertise and real-world
knowledge our professors bring to the classroom.
Starting as early as your freshman year, you
can access state-of-the-art research labs.
All direct admit, freshman, Biology students
are even guaranteed paid lab experience.
Let’s head to our other Purdue school, the
Purdue School of Engineering and Technology.
We’re standing in The Maker’s Space.
The Purdue School of Engineering and Technology
grants Purdue degrees in programs like Motorsports
engineering, Energy Engineering, and Computer
And because of our location, you get both
a Purdue degree and access to the great resources
and opportunities in the city.
We’re standing in the Motorsports Lab.
We were actually the first school in the nation
to offer a Bachelor's degree in Motorsports,
and obviously, with access to the racing capital
of the world and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,
it’s a really strong program with great
hands-on learning opportunities.
Now let’s head over to the Information and
Communication Technology Complex or ICTC.
We’re now standing in the main entrance
to the Information and Communication Technology
Complex, home to the IU School of Informatics
Informatics is everything that shapes the
way we use information technology and computing
to improve how people work and live.
This is an area with really high job growth
and demand for new grads.
The School of Informatics and Computing has
degree programs for things like Biomedical
Informatics, Health Information Management,
and Media Arts and Sciences.
Graduates have gone on to work for companies
like Amazon, Netflix, Google, Pixar, Eli Lilly,
and tons more.
All of the seniors present their Capstone,
which is kind of like a final project, at
a showcase before graduation.
They’ve done a ton of cool things in the
past, like developing exhibits for Newfields,
designing prosthetics to treat facial deformities,
and even filming documentaries.
None of these projects would be possible without
some of the resources available to students
in the ICTC like the Advanced Visualization
lab, the Virtual Reality Theater, the Video
Editing Lab, and a green screen room.
Just across the street from us, a construction
project is underway for the newest addition
to IUPUI’s campus, Innovation Hall.
Let’s go check it out.
We’re now at the future site of Innovation
It’s expected to be completed by August
The building is going to bring all three of
the schools we just saw; School of Science,
School of Engineering and Technology, and
Informatics and Computing, together in research
and classroom space.
It’s being built with collaboration and
active learning in mind, as well as lots of
space for open studying.
An entire two-story glass wall will face Michigan
Street with open study areas which will offer
a really cool view.
Let’s take a quick look at one of the existing
labs on campus with tons of collaboration
space and tech available to students.
We’re now in the Idea Garden.
This space was created a few years ago and
it’s packed with tech like 3D printers,
VR equipment, and an IQ Wall.
This space is completely open to students
so you can come in here and work on a project
for class or just a passion project.
Any idea you can come up with in your head,
this space is designed to give you the tools
to bring it to life.
I love having access to the 3D printers here
so I can use them for class or even personal
There are tons of opportunities to learn here
They host events so you can learn some of
the latest techniques and technologies.
And the entire space is built with collaboration
in mind, so there’s moveable furniture and
a great whiteboard and smartboard space in
Alright, so we’ve covered STEM at IUPUI,
let’s go take a look at the arts.
