2016 ENE Outstanding Alumni and Student Honorees

It is of great honor that we introduce this year's Outstanding Alumni Honoree, Holly Simmons,1998 graduate from the Interdisciplinary Engineering Program (IDE). Holly used what she gained from Purdue’s Interdisciplinary Engineering program to make a positive difference in her chosen field and the millions of users whose lives have been enriched by the products that she has developed and marketed along her path. She is an excellent example of just what our students can accomplish when they combine an interdisciplinary outlook with a drive to contribute to the world around them.
