Helping Faculty Excel
The people of Purdue’s College of Engineering do amazing things. Some are leading campus-wide endeavors exploring everything from the very small (nanotechnology) to the very large (systems of systems). Others are integrating academic units and research centers. Still others are fostering novel interdisciplinary collaborations. Whatever your role, you play an important part in engineering the solutions to the grand challenges of the 21st century.
We in the Office of Academic Affairs are here to support and encourage you. It’s our job to maintain an outstanding culture and climate within the College of Engineering—one that enables faculty, staff and students to achieve and excel. From hiring and retention, to promotion and tenure, to reward and recognition, we work hard to ensure Purdue is the “university of choice” for the best in the engineering field.
