The Purdue Cooperative Education Hall of Fame inducted IE alumna Amy Adams (BSIE 1988) and five other Purdue alumni as 2017 members in a September 22 ceremony.

Adams is currently the vice president and general manager of Cummins Emission Solutions. In 2016, Purdue Industrial Engineering named her as an Outstanding Industrial Engineer. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering from Purdue and a Master's degree in Management from the J.L. Kellogg School of Business at Northwestern University.

The Cooperative Education Hall of Fame was created in 2010 to recognize individuals who have had a significant influence on the Professional Practice Programs, as well as alumni of the programs who have demonstrated unparalleled excellence in their field.  These individuals represent the very best that co-op has to offer, be it through mentoring co-op students or serving as a prime example of the opportunities that cooperative education has to offer.
