16, 2020, we will welcome home three recent MDE alumni/ae – Kalena
Isaacson (’15 MDE General Engineering), Maria Krutikova (’16
MDE General Engineering), and Alex Offenbach (’16 MDE General
Engineering) to discuss their roles in the automotive industry.
In this panel discussion, we will learn about the roles MDE alumni fill in the safe and high-performance vehicle development we see in the market place of today and beyond. Moderated by their former professor and mentor Dr. Mary Pilotte, we will explore the beneficial skill set, professional choices, and lessons learned for those with job responsibilities of internal and external vehicle functionality addressed by visual design engineers, and how leadership roles working with the top automotive manufacturing and distribution centers deliver excellent results with general engineering alumni/ae.
The colloquium is open to the general public. The panel discussion will be live-streamed and archived for on-demand viewing. We encourage attendance of students and faculty interested in the skills desired for the automotive industry as well as experiences for recently transitioned engineers from Purdue to industry.
