Advancing the Future of Engineering
Our distance faculty, many of them award-winning instructors and researchers, are drawn from a number
of engineering departments as well as the science, statistics and mathematics departments. As a major
research university, Purdue prides itself on the quality of its faculty and continuously challenges them
toward interdisciplinary pursuits. Dale Harris, Executive Director of Engineering Professional Education and Professor of Engineering Education, works with a faculty committee to develop new curricula and encourage innovative teaching.
