How did building cities in the dirt with toys and listening to soccer games on the radio lead a boy from Colombia to a distinguished career in industry and higher education that spanned three continents? It’s the story of Daniel Castro, the new dean of Purdue University's Polytechnic Institute.
Castro discusses what led him to study civil engineering and construction management in Colombia, in the United Kingdom, and here at Purdue. He talks about his experience in industry and at Georgia Tech, Purdue Polytechnic’s mission and bright future, and his near-term goals for the college.
