The CHIPS Act has spurred on big changes at Purdue Polytechnic. Professors and students are coming together in the engineering technology department to discover how America can re-shore its semiconductor industry.
James Tanoos, a Purdue Polytechnic professor with many years of practical expertise in the global supply chain, won the best presenter award at the 2nd World Conference on Mechanical Engineering (WCME).
During last spring's Tech Expo, Purdue Polytechnic seniors in the School of Engineering Technology showcased many ways they've "learned by doing" through projects for international industry partners to solve real-world engineering problems.
Purdue Polytechnic's James Tanoos turned the tables on his students this semester by giving them the opportunity to be consultants. Students got to use their expertise learned in class and beyond to help two businesses, by and for Boilermakers, persistently pursue their goals with the latest strategic approaches.
Jim Tanoos takes a global approach to helping students study supply chain management. Since 2017, Tanoos has shepherded his students onto planes and into four cities in Europe.
A team of students majoring in supply chain management technology placed second in the Conexus Logistics Case Study Competition held October 12-14 in Indianapolis.
Logistics experts from Purdue University and Ivy Tech Community College offered intensive logistics workshops at the 2014 Indiana Logistics Summit, which focused on helping businesses improve their workforce development and supply chain practices.
Shweta Chopra, a graduate student in the Department of Technology Leadership and Innovation, received the first place award for graduate research at the recent ATMAE Annual Conference.
Chopra was honored for her dissertation research into the rice supply chain in India, her home country. Her ultimate goal is to improve the way rice is distributed, from the growers to consumers, while eliminating corruption and waste. Her research is ongoing.
Sometimes explaining isn’t enough to achieve the desired impact on student learning, but doing can make a difference for students – even in courses traditionally taught in large lecture halls.
