This partnership enables Morgan State University students studying civil engineering or engineering physics to finish the first three years of their studies at Morgan State before completing their coursework at Purdue, where they can earn a bachelor of science degree from the College of Engineering’s School of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AAE) in addition to their Morgan State degree.

Student Benefits

  • Earn bachelor’s degrees from both universities
  • Ability to connect with world-class engineering faculty and alumni
  • Opportunities for guided undergraduate research with Purdue faculty members in Purdue’s state-of-the-art research labs
  • Access to popular programs and clubs, including Purdue Space Program (PSP), Women in Aviation, and Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS)
  • Preparation for careers in aerospace engineering and related disciplines

Join the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program!

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program provides an action-oriented research experience for undergraduate students to stimulate their interest in advanced education and research careers. Selected students engage in research this summer on Purdue's West Lafayette, Indiana campus! SURF matches undergraduates with a faculty member and graduate student mentor who introduce them to the research tools used on the cutting edges of science, engineering, and technology. (Open to Purdue students and undergraduate students enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities.)
