Purdue Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE)
Purdue Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) is one of the marquee programs of the Purdue-India Initiative. This nine-week summer program in partnership with three Indian Institutes of Technology: IIT Madras, IIT Bombay, and IIT Hyderabad will take place from May 18 to July 17, 2020. Through the program, top students in BTech programs or dual-degree programs graduating in 2021, are matched with Purdue faculty to work on summer research projects. PURE was created in 2016 as a mechanism to raise interest in Purdue graduate programs among high-students from IITs and foster collaborations in research and education by strengthening institutional partnerships—including department-to-department and research group-to-research group activities—while providing substantive research experience to top Indian undergraduates. PLEASE NOTE: THE SUMMER 2021 PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELLED. STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION FOR 2022.

Participating Departments and projects
The below project list for summer 2020 is not exhaustive; faculty had the option to post a project but many did not even though they may still be interested in receiving a PURE student.
(Note: Students who have adequate background and qualifications may choose to apply for projects/positions in departments other than the one at which they are currently enrolled at their IIT).
