John A. Edwardson Dean College of Engineering Purdue University

Purdue University seeks a leader with a compelling vision for excellence who will inspire faculty, attract both eminent and promising talent, and establish a common purpose to pursue preeminent status among public university colleges of engineering. Purdue’s College of Engineering is ranked 9th nationally and is among the largest in graduate and undergraduate engineering enrollments in America. Established in 1869, Purdue is Indiana’s land-grant university, a comprehensive educational and research institution that is a member of the American Association of Universities (AAU). The West Lafayette Campus, located one hour north of Indianapolis and two hours south of downtown Chicago, has ten academic colleges with an enrollment of 40,000 students. Purdue’s strengths in Agriculture, Science, Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacy, Liberal Arts, Management, and the Health and Human Sciences contribute to a robust research and educational environment and complement Engineering’s world class programs. The College of Engineering has a proud tradition of leadership in education innovation and in creating programs for women and minorities in engineering that have become models for the rest of the country to emulate and follow. The Dean, reporting directly to the Provost, serves as the primary academic and administrative officer of the College of Engineering and plays a central role in leading Purdue’s College of Engineering to the next level of preeminence. An earned Ph.D. in an Engineering or related field is required.
