Armour R&D consists of two programs: Program for Undergraduate Research Education (PURE), which focuses on research, and Mentored Innovation and Development (MIND), which focuses on developing technology based on research. Both programs aim to provide undergraduate students with a unique, hands-on experience with research and development.

Armour College of Engineering hosted its annual Armour R&D Expo in spring 2019 to showcase the work of students who participated in the program during the 2018–19 academic year.
