So what is re|course about?

re|course is our initiative to take Purdue ME to the next level of innovation, productivity, and performance. Mechanical engineering, the first engineering department at Purdue University, continues to lead in exploring “what’s next?” for Purdue Engineering.  In recognition of our national leadership, the National Science Foundation (NSF) selected Purdue ME to participate in its bold REvolutionizing engineering & computer science Departments (RED) program.

The problem

Surveys of students & employers in the 2013 ABET report show that we’re not meeting expectations for many professional skills including communication, leadership, and innovation. This is a nationwide problem and Purdue is leading the charge for change.

Our approach

re|course teams consisting of faculty, staff & students are empowered to take ME to the next level by re-engineering our program to improve students’ professional skills.
