As a graduate of Purdue Polytechnic's master's program in computer graphics technology, Xingyu has gotten to work on som big-name projects such as "The Last of Us" and "Call of Duty" franchises, just in the first leg of his career alone. Read on to find out what advice he gives to up-and-coming professionals in the field.
Congratulations to Purdue Polytechnic's Cheng Peng, awarded by a DC-based National Academy branch for significant contributions as a young scholar of transportation research.
Purdue Polytechnic's Department of Computer and Information Technology has just formed its first official organization for graduate students, which will provide a support network for academic and social life, as well as helping with funding for conferences and travel related to students' work.
Zixu Zhang, a PhD student in Purdue Polytechnic's technology program, earned a top three spot out of a 600-person research competition in cognitive engineering.
The SMART Lab, run by Purdue Polytechnic faculty member Byung-Cheol Min, showed off a great deal of original research at IROS 2023, one of the world’s largest robotics conferences, in early October.
Through a collaborative agreement between Purdue and Germany’s Reutlingen University, students can earn two master’s degrees simultaneously: a master of science in engineering technology from Purdue and a master of science in digital industrial management and engineering from Reutlingen.
As industries grow more interconnected - even down to the software the use - hackers have more and more chances to exploit weaknesses in the software supply chain. That's why Polytechnic faculty are collaborating on a solution, with grant funding from Google.
Students in Purdue Polytechnic’s aviation technology-related majors won first- and third-place awards at the Transportation Research Board’s annual University Design Competition for Addressing Airport Needs.
During the five-year period that ended in spring 2020, Purdue conferred the most doctoral degrees to Black graduate students in engineering-related technology and several other disciplines, as compared with its peer R1 research institutions nationally and in the Big Ten.
Because of inhospitable living conditions in outer space, some of the galaxy’s next explorers will be robots. To ascertain the caliber of the world’s robotics experts, the Centennial Challenges Program at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) teamed with the Space Center Houston, the official visitor center of NASA’s Johnson Space Center, for the Space Robotics Challenge. A team led by Byung-Cheol “B.C.” Min, associate professor in Purdue Polytechnic’s Department of Computer and Information Technology, is a finalist in NASA’s robotics challenge.
