Hi there! You're correct in your assumption – Purdue University is indeed considered a research university. As a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU), Purdue is recognized for its strong commitment to research and innovation.

There are plenty of undergraduate research opportunities at Purdue. In fact, the university has an Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) that helps students find and apply for research positions. They even offer programs like the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) and Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship (DURI) to provide structured research experiences.

Aside from these university-wide opportunities, many individual departments and professors also offer research projects and positions to undergraduate students. So, if you're interested in participating in research, I would encourage you to look into the specific research areas within your desired major and reach out to faculty for further information once you're enrolled.

Best of luck with your college search, and I hope this helps!
