Brad Morton Alumni Profile
The Purdue MET program taught me to look at every issue from two perspectives: what is possible and what is needed. Finding the right balance requires a mind that can bridge the theory and its practical application to find a solution that exceeds every aspect of the customer’s needs. The curriculum in the College of Technology develops the mind to strike that balance.
