School of Engineering Education Seminars

The School of Engineering Education hosts a weekly seminar series from 3:30 to 4:20 p.m. on Thursdays in Armstrong Hall, B071.*  

These seminars provide the engineering education community a chance to get together to talk about new ideas, share successes and new research, and support developing research. A novel mix of presentations, performances, and conversations facilitated by external visitors and Purdue University members is on offer. This seminar is for graduate and undergraduate students, staff, and faculty from across the university. Join us!  

*except for the Interdisciplinary Engineering Colloquium, which takes place in Kurz Atrium in Armstrong Hall.
