Purdue-TEEX Collaboration

The combined experience of the Purdue and TEEX teams ensures a successful project.

Purdue University, a land grant public university with an annual budget of $2.14 billion (2020), is a top public research institution developing practical solutions to today’s toughest challenges. Purdue has a rich history of collaboration with the US government, the DHS, and FEMA. This program includes researchers from the cybersecurity, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and training and development areas who have a track record of success through the Center for the Environment (C4E), the Envision Center, Purdue HRD Virtual Lab, the UMIT² Lab, and the Cyber-Physical-Social Systems Design Lab.

The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) is an internationally recognized leader in delivering emergency response, homeland security training and exercises, technical assistance, and economic development. In FY 2019, TEEX served over 204,000 participants from every U.S. state and territory and 105 countries worldwide.

The partnership leverages TEEX’s experience and Purdue’s expertise to ensure comprehensive training development and implementation. The highly experienced curriculum designers and top-notch subject matter professionals provide the capability to tailor training and exercises to meet the needs of the nation’s public safety community to deliver training anywhere, in person or virtually. TEEX is a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC) and the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium (NCPC). TEEX plays a major role in establishing and maintaining DHS/FEMA’s concept of a culture of preparedness. It has sharpened its focus on that concept by incorporating an all-of-nation/whole community, risk-driven, capabilities-based approach to preparedness. TEEX provides training in competency areas across the community that include: cybersecurity, crisis communications, executive and elected official education, hazardous materials awareness and operations, health and medical services, incident management, infrastructure protection, search and rescue, threat and risk assessment, training gap analysis, and public works.
