Teaching and Learning in Engineering Graduate Certificate

The School of Engineering Education (ENE), the world's first such academic unit—in 2004, and along with it, the world's first engineering education doctoral program - is offering a “Teaching and Learning in Engineering” graduate certificate.  The certificate is designed to elevate the quality of teaching performance and student preparation, leading to fewer DFWs, higher degree completion rates and higher student satisfaction with courses.    

Cyber Security Courses: Design for Security Program

Today there are more than 300,000 cyber security job openings. To meet the growing demand, Purdue University and CERIAS are collaborating to offer a new “ Cyber Security - Design for Security” program led by Purdue’s School of Industrial Engineering and Purdue Online Learning. “Design for Security” focuses on both on the production level – those companies that produce cyber or cyber-physical systems and their components – and on the education level – those universities that produce the engineers and scientists who design the cyber or cyber-physical systems and associated processes.
