Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship Program

What is the DURI program?

The Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship (DURI) program is designed to involve Purdue undergraduates in the interdisciplinary research environment of Discovery Park. The program provides opportunities for students to work with faculty affiliated with Discovery Park on cutting edge research projects that involve combining two or more disciplinary strengths. Working closely with faculty, students experience the excitement, challenge, and power of truly interdisciplinary research in the fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment that is Purdue's Discovery Park.

As a pilot program this summer, the DURI program will offer 10 internships for students interested in projects relevant to global security. Other strategic themes for Discovery Park will be emphasized in the future.
