2010 Purdue-Silicon Valley Symposia

The 2010 Purdue–Silicon Valley Symposia are a series of monthly technical seminars introducing alumni and corporate friends in California’s Silicon Valley to exciting research taking place at Purdue. These talks highlight areas of new opportunity for Silicon Valley investors and Purdue faculty to join forces in their common pursuit of field-defining research and educational innovation.

These seminars focus on topics within Purdue Engineering's signature areas, providing opportunities to network with Purdue alumni and faculty and discover infinite possibilities for collaboration between Silicon Valley and Purdue. For an overview of past events, please see last year’s speakers and topics.
