Purdue names Brandon Wells as commencement student responder


Congratulations to Brandon Wells on behalf of the Minority Engineering Program’s staff, students, alumni and friends, for being named a Purdue commencement student responder for the graduating class of 2020.

After graduation Brandon will return to Purdue as a GEM Fellow to pursue a Master of Science degree in Materials Engineering. His research focus is microencapsulation systems, and he will be a part of Professor Carlos Martinez research group. When asked how MEP impacted his time at Purdue, Brandon said, “Through MEP I have made close friends and learned from influential mentors. In addition to the academic resources, I was always encouraged by seeing older students succeed after leaving Purdue, and seeing younger students grow to take paths I never considered.” And to the next generation that follows in Brandon’s footsteps at Purdue on their path to becoming an exceptional engineer, “Just because a class is outside of your discipline doesn’t mean it can’t be related to your career! In addition to new classes that are offered every semester, there are even more opportunities through projects in student organizations or research groups that allow you to explore ways to combine your academic and personal interests.”
