WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Rolls-Royce and Purdue University are forming a $33 million jet-engine research and development program to create next-generation aircraft propulsion systems.

Purdue announced last week that the partnership will initially encompass two research centers in the areas of advanced thermal management systems and advanced compressor systems.

Purdue and Rolls-Royce earlier formed a partnership in 2003 to study high-Mach propulsion, and that program is transitioning into the focus on advanced thermal management systems.

Purdue says Rolls-Royce already employs nearly 600 Purdue alumni, making it a strong recruiter of Purdue graduates.
