Engineering Projects In Community Service

EPICS is a unique program in which teams of undergraduates are designing, building, and deploying real systems to solve engineering-based problems for local community service and education organizations.


Global Engineering Program (GEP)

Purdue's Global Engineering Program (GEP) hosted the third annual Global Engineering Design Symposium (GEDS) on January 25, 2014. Through a series of presentations and interactive discussions, the symposium challenged participants to think about what it means to undertake participatory problem solving in developing contexts, including a thorough discussion of considering stakeholder needs and engaging with international partners.

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

This 8-week summer program at Purdue University's West Lafayette campus allows undergraduate students to engage in the forefront of information security research working on individual project areas. Some areas include:

  1. The Cloud's DNA
  2. Detecting Patterns of Humor
  3. Quantifying Informativeness and Novelty of Text
  4. Detecting Script-Underlying Recurring Situations in Text
  5. A security-enabled interface for humanoid robot-to-robot communication, within a HARMS model.

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) Program

The SURF program provides undergraduates opportunity to gain hands-on research experience by exploring a topic of interest alongside a Purdue professor and graduate student. During the 11-week summer program, students develop their knowledge of the research process by contributing to a real world project, network with other researchers, and present their discoveries at the end of the summer. The program offers full time, paid research positions on the Purdue campus and is open to students from all disciplines.
