Purdue Calumet’s research activities advance the university as well as the community through economic development, student, faculty and staff engagement and outreach activities.  We offer intellectual and technological resources to solve business problems and attract new industry.  We shape regional economic development through world class research institutes for Water, Energy, and Visualization and Simulation, as well as centers including Packaging and Machinery Industry and Commercialization. Keeping academic excellence as a core value of the university, we offer opportunities for students to get involved in research through their classes, independent projects or by working with faculty.
