Through independent research opportunities, undergraduates gain useful exposure to the field of biomedical engineering. Interested Purdue students are encouraged to visit the biomedical engineering Web site (https://engineering.purdue.edu/BME/), to investigate individual faculty research pages to identify research projects of interest to them, and to contact the faculty members directly about undergraduate research opportunities throughout the year.

Students from universities outside Purdue who are interested in a summer undergraduate research experience with the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering are encouraged to investigate this program for possible future graduate studies with us. Email surf@purdue.edu, or call 765-496-2349, to learn how to identify an appropriate research advisor in biomedical engineering for the Summer Undergraduate Research (SURF) program. Participants in SURF receive financial support from the College of Engineering and the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering for the summer program. Please also visit the SURF Web site for general information and application materials.
