Brian Imbler Alumni Profile
I could write a book about what the Purdue EET program has allowed me to accomplish. the foundation of knowledge and experience that it provided along with the relationships that were cultivated were keys to the successes that I have enjoyed in my career. The bottom line is, and this I'm sure will never change, when asked what my educational background is, with confidence and pride I just smile and say 'I went to Purdue.' That's all that needs to be said.
