Associate Professor of Engineering Education and Mechanical Engineering
Edward Berger holds M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from Purdue. Before joining the faculty of engineering education and mechanical engineering at Purdue, he served as the associate dean for undergraduate programs in the School of Engineering at the University of Virginia, where he was also a faculty member in mechanical engineering. Previously, he served on the faculty in mechanical engineering at the University of Cincinnati.
Berger’s engineering education research areas includes two key issues: as an instructor, the use of social media for effective teaching; and as an administrator, the emerging institutional research area of predictive models for student academic success. His mechanical engineering research interests include the nonlinear mechanics of joints and interfaces.
