My name is David Bowker and I have been the Director of Undergraduate Engineering Recruitment in July of 2001. I am responsible directing and implementing recruitment activities for the College of Engineering. It is a really great gig. Always fast paced and always something new going on. I would not still be here if I did not believe in the quality of a Purdue Engineering degree and I still have fun every day. I am lucky I get to meet great students like yourself all the time! Prior to being at Purdue, I spent three years as Recruitment Coordinator at Ivy Tech State College-Lafayette and a year advising in the School of Education at Purdue. My bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership and supervision in 1994 and his master’s degree in higher education administration in 1997 from Purdue University. Yes I have spent a lot of time in the Greater Lafayette area. It is home for sure! It Is a really welcoming community and there is plenty of things to do and experience. In my free time, I am teach Spin classes at a local gym, travel, hang with friends/family and attend cool events on campus. I hope to meet you at Purdue soon!
Title: Associate Director, Office of Future Engineers
Hey everyone, my name is Amy Cade and I’m the Assistant Director of the Office of Future Engineers.
I began working for Purdue University in 2000 in the Student Activities and Organizations office, part of the Dean of Students, while going to school full-time. After graduating with a BS in Organizational Leadership and Supervision, I left Purdue to pursue a career in the corporate world. It was my experience in the corporate world which helped me realize that I missed being on campus with the faculty, staff and most of all the students, prompting my decision to return to Purdue University to pursue a career helping future students achieve their dreams. One of my goals is to encourage students to do well in Math and Science while in high school so that they have more opportunities when it comes to college and careers.
Since returning to Purdue I received my MS in Industrial Technology while working full-time in my current role, co-directing and implementing recruitment activities for the College of Engineering as well as various outreach and educational events across the U.S.
