Rolls-Royce and Purdue University Sign New Research Agreement

Rolls-Royce and Purdue University representative sign a new research agreement. Rolls-Royce and Purdue University will combine resources to form a $33 million jet-engine research and development program to create next-generation aircraft propulsion systems. Rolls-Royce already employs nearly 600 Purdue alumni, making it a strong recruiter of Purdue graduates. As part of the increased engagement Rolls-Royce will designate Purdue as a University Technology Partnership (UTP). The Purdue UTP will initially encompass two research centers in the areas of advanced thermal management systems and advanced compressor systems, expanding beyond the current University Technology Center (UTC) designation. The first Rolls-Royce UTC established outside of Europe was launched at Purdue in 2003 to study high-Mach propulsion, and that program is transitioning into a focus on systems for advanced thermal management, said Dan Hirleman, Purdue's chief corporate and global partnerships officer. Now Purdue receives the first UTP designation in the U.S. The new partnership with Rolls-Royce reflects Purdue's commitment to leveraging the Lilly Endowment grant to bolster research and education in engineering and technology and to strengthen Purdue's contribution to Indiana's economy. The Rolls-Royce funding will support research and technology development in thermal management for advanced propulsion systems, compressor and turbine technology, and analytical methods.
