EEE Insights — Fall 2018

Greetings from Purdue EEE!

We have many exciting things to report as we advance through the fall semester. First, we have begun celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of Purdue University. The theme of the sesquicentennial is Giant Leaps, and it will culminate with the 2019 Homecoming. One of the themes of this year-long celebration is “Sustainable Economy & Planet,” and Environmental and Ecological Engineering (EEE) is playing a major role within this theme.
