In the spring semester of 1875, Purdue University offered its first four-year degrees in engineering for students who wanted to study either mechanical or civil engineering. Since that time, the engineering program has grown exponentially: In the 2014-2015 school year alone, Purdue awarded over 2,500 graduate and undergraduate degrees in disciplines such as nuclear, electrical and computer, biomedical, agricultural, and chemical engineering. The engineering program currently has 11,083 students and 409 faculty members.

Outside of the classroom, Purdue University’s College of Engineering students have the opportunity to see how academic concepts are applied to research problems by contributing to studies conducted by the Office of Research. The school’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program, or SURF, pays students to work on original research projects under the supervision of a faculty member. For example, students developed a model designed to study DNA sequences and a voice box for those who have undergone larynx surgery. Students who participate in the SURF program also attend an engineering symposium and celebrate their success at an end-of-summer banquet.
