Purdue ME Industry Connection

Part of being a successful Purdue ME student is making a connection to industry -- whether it's through an internship, co-op, job opportunity, design project, or even an international work experience.  I'm here to help you make that connection.  Stop by my office, give me a call, or shoot me an email. I work exclusively with Mechanical Engineering students, so I can help you find the perfect opportunity!
