    I initially chose Purdue University for master's degree from School of Aeronautics and Astronautics which is among the top graduate programs in USA and provided ample exposure to chart my way into a Ph.D program. There are a variety of research areas available, however, some research is restricted to US nationals only in the field of aerospace technology. This is also true for aerospace-related jobs in private sector which also requires US citizenship for security reasons. Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science department at Purdue is among the fastest growing Department in this field here. Admitted students are well supported through assistantships and fellowships. I chose to get a Ph.D in Planetary Sciences as I am fascinated about the geologic processes on earth and other solar system bodies. Amazing research is currently happening about moon, mars, mercury, icy moons, asteroids, and extrasolar planets. Purdue is situated in West Lafayette which is a university town and I like it that way.

    Course Curriculum :

    Each graduate student can build a customized curriculum based on one's interest. The may include courses from multiple departments and there is an option to create a new coursework with support of a professor where you decide your syllabus. Apart from courses which teach about fundaments of a particular field of study, there are my seminar like courses which keep students updated with current happenings in the field. Projects in coursework provide hands on experience and can lead to a research article by itself. Students are consistently encourages to apply for fellowships and awards at department, state, national, and international levels. Research work leads to attending and presenting at many conferences which adds great value to your study. There is also an opportunity to gain experience in teaching by lecturing a freshmen level course.
