Semester/Summer Undergraduate Research in engineering (SURE) Program
SURE Program at Purdue Northwest provides students an opportunity to work closely with faculty on research projects during the academic year and/or summer. SURE supports active research participation of undergraduate students in ongoing research projects. These projects help to prepare students for graduate school and the workforce. Also, participating in research projects prepares students to think independently, collaborate with other students, gain hands-on experience, and apply theoretical knowledge gained in classroom to solve practical engineering problems. The students will be exposed to professional development, technical, and academic seminars. SURE links undergraduate students with faculty and graduate student mentors, and introduces them to advanced research tools at the frontier of engineering.
