Purdue University opened its ADM Agricultural Innovation Center on Wednesday (Jan.18), heralding it as offering greater laboratory and classroom opportunities for students in the university's top-rated Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering.
The $4.2 million, 27,000-square-foot center was built with a $1.5 million contribution from Archer Daniels Midland Co. in 2011. ADM is a longstanding partner with Purdue in the education of agricultural and biological engineering and agricultural systems management students. Construction of the steel-frame building on the south side of campus began last spring.
