Because our majors benefit from hands-on experiences to to assist in their learning, they need up-to-date labs and research facilities. Each department maintains and updates its learning facilities to provide real-world and technology experiences for their students. In addition, certain labs were created to focus on one type of research, led by faculty in the department.
The lab is used to carry out common genomic biotechnology methods in collaboration with other groups on campus, as well as develop new methods for detecting DNA biomarkers and developing innovative information management systems in support of genomics research.
The Purdue University Cyber Forensics Lab is a national academic leader in Education & Training, Applied & Basic Research, and Investigative Support of Digital Forensic Science and Cyber Forensics. Our strengths lie in the applied research and technological solutions for the technical and theoretical challenges that exist in our specific domains.
The Purdue Computer and Information Technology High Performance Computer and Cyberinfrastructure Laboratory (HPC-CRL) is a focal point for education, research, and collaboration in the development, deployment, and use of supercomputing, grid computing, and cyberinfrastructure.
INtegrated Smart Energy Technology lab (INSET)- provides a shared space that supports the understanding and learning of the electrical Smart Grid - a system that interconnects the electricity distribution grid with two-way communications to provide energy monitoring and management for the power industry and consumers. The lab promotes classroom learning, linked to applied technology research of the electrical, mechanical and IT systems, in energy storage (batteries), electric vehicles, electric vehicle charging stations, vehicle-to-grid integration, distributed automation technologies. An all electric go-kart platform selected as an EV surrogate intends to capture student interest while providing an inexpensive way and safe way to gain hands-on learning of electromechanical systems. Originally developed to support the first Purdue evGrandPrix, the lab sustains this activity, while integrating the EV platform as a subsystem of the overall electrical Smart Grid. CIT, EET, and MET work together to train students for industry.
The Mobile Computing Lab offers students an environment where they are able to explore as well as develop the skills and knowledge in order to create new technologies, new innovations in order to increase efficiency and usability for individuals.
The Network Administration & Security Lab offers students an environment where they are able to explore as well as develop the skills and knowledge in order to create new technologies, new innovations in order to increase efficiency and safety for individuals.
A proper design can offer many benefits like security, accessibility, usability, speed, redundancy and scalability. The Network Infrastructure Design & Deployment Lab provides students with an environment where they are able to explore as well as develop the skills and knowledge in order to create new processes, new innovations in order to increase efficiency and performance.
The NIPA Capstone Lab provides students with an environment where they can explore as well as develop the skills and knowledge in order to create new technology, new innovations to improve the lives of individuals.
Telecare ensures that individuals with disabilities as well as the elderly are able to receive the care and treatment that they deserve. The lab provides an environment in which students are able to develop new technology, new processes in order to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities as well as the elderly. Some of the technology that students have worked with have been: web cameras, VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol), door and window sensors, motion sensors, temperature sensors, carbon monoxide sensor, two way video monitors, weight scales, blood pressure, prescription taking aids.
Wireless networks can make delivery of high-demand technologies like broadband Internet access, voice over IP, video services, security surveillance and E1/T1 capabilities both faster and significantly less expensive. In the Wireless Network Applied Research Lab, through hands-on lab experiences and experimentation, students learn how to evaluate technical performance criteria, make comparisons among different systems, and match systems and equipment to the unique application needs of an organization’s users.
