Congratulations to Our External Award Winners of 2020 (Fiscal Year)

Supporting excellence

Faculty excellence is foundational to Purdue Engineering’s reputation and impact. Whether they are mentoring students for success, inspiring students in classes, leading major research centers, collaborating with industry, or spinning off new companies with their innovations, Purdue Engineering faculty have a major impact on the world through their own work and through their student’s success.

Faculty, staff, and academic programs excellence together are key for Purdue Engineering’s Pinnacle of Excellence at Scale. From hiring and retention, to promotion and tenure, to reward and recognition, the OAA staff work hard to ensure Purdue Engineering is the “college of choice” for the best engineering talent.

Purdue is an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity

4 Engineering faculty named Fulbright Scholars

Teaching agricultural and food engineering, advancing STEM learning, studying cardiac remodeling, and improving Alzheimer's disease treatments are some of the research projects of four Purdue Engineering faculty who have been named U.S. Fulbright Faculty Scholars.

Four Engineering faculty are among the six Purdue University faculty who have been named U.S. Fulbright Faculty Scholars. These Engineering faculty members will teach and conduct research at respected research hubs in India and throughout Europe. 

According to Purdue’s Office of the Provost, the Fulbright Scholar Award, one of the most prestigious national and international awards available to faculty, is considered a metric for measuring university performance while supporting the university’s efforts toward internationalization and intercultural learning. Fulbright faculty also enhance classroom learning at Purdue by bringing back diverse teaching methods and ideas.

3 Purdue Engineering faculty honored among 20 Most Influential Academics in Smart Manufacturing

Three Purdue College of Engineering faculty members are among the 20 Most Influential Academics in Smart Manufacturing recognized by SME, the professional association committed to advancing manufacturing and developing a skilled workforce.

SME Media’s Smart Manufacturing magazine, assisted by industry peers and manufacturing experts, selected academics who are “educating and shaping the next generation of engineers and smart manufacturing technologists across a diverse range of disciples.”

The Purdue Engineering honorees are:

John W. Sutherland
Professor and Fehsenfeld Family Head of Environmental and Ecological Engineering

Sutherland wants sensors to do more. In smart manufacturing, sensors can collect data on real-time key performance indicators, such as process throughput. But sensed data can also provide people making decisions with information related to environmentally relevant performance measures, such as energy consumption, resource use and waste creation, he said.
