News about Purdue ranking and research

We received the following delightful information from President Martin Jischke of Purdue University:

"A strong indicator of excellence came in August with the release of U.S. News & World Report's annual rankings of university undergraduate programs. Purdue remains among America's top 25 public universities in the rankings, and the College of Engineering and Krannert School of Management continue to shine.

"Eleven Purdue engineering programs rank in the magazine's top 20, with seven of them in the top 10. Overall, Purdue was ranked eighth in the nation among doctoral-granting institutions, tied with Carnegie Mellon and Cornell.

"The Krannert School jumped five spots in the rankings into a tie for 12th with five other programs. U.S. News ranked Indiana University's Kelley School of Business 11th and Notre Dame's Mendoza School of Business in a tie for 22nd. So the state of Indiana can boast of having three of the nations's top 25 undergraduate business schools....

"Purdue announced two important new research centers for Discovery Park in August. The Energy Center will focus on research to develop future power sources, including methods that use solar and nuclear energy, clean-coal technology, bio-energy and wind turbines. Thanks to Senator Richard Lugar, the recently passed federal energy bill identifies the new center to share in future funding for coal-related research. A new Cyberinfrastructure Center will unite computer resources at all Purdue campuses, enhancing research and education, setting the stage for more federal funding and ultimately boosting Indiana's economy. Thanks to Lilly Endowment support, the Cyber Center will place the University at a competitive advantage by accelerating discovery, which will lead to new avenues of research."
