Dean's Message: August 2017

Dear Friends of Purdue Engineering:

One month into this exciting place I now call home, I am grateful for the warm welcome from many on and off campus. The pride and passion for Purdue Engineering is contagious.

Each day I walk into my office in the Hall of Engineering that bears the name of Purdue Engineering alumnus Neil Armstrong (BSAE '55), I feel the connection to the proud heritage of this institution. The College of Engineering at Purdue has made impact on the world through the discovery and dissemination of knowledge, through the foundation and artifacts of engineering, and through the lives of so many Boilermaker engineers: 90,000 of them around the globe today.

I also hope to walk out of my office many times a week, through the beautiful campus and all the engineering buildings. If I don’t run into you during these “random walks,” I hope you will be able to visit my Open Office Hours or join us at the Town Hall Meetings.

Starting this month and throughout the coming semester, we will update our communication channels too. A fun place to start is perhaps to follow me on Twitter @PurdueEngDean

Purdue Engineering is a place where we achieve excellence at scale. See you in the new academic year. Boiler up!

John A. Edwardson Dean of the College of Engineering
