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 14 - July 13, 2018. Through the program,top third-year students in BTech or dual-degree programs 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-caliber 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.
