Speaker Series

What is OMEGA's Speaker Series?

OMEGA's Speaker Series is an academic initiative launched in Fall 2023.  These events welcome accomplished Purdue alumni -- including industry representatives, faculty, and other speakers -- to share their invaluable insights with aspiring ME graduate students. This event promises an engaging and interactive format where we pose thought-provoking questions to our esteemed speakers, drawing from their rich experiences during their own graduate journeys at Purdue University.

Together, we will delve into their personal narratives, exploring their transformation as graduate students, the pivotal choices between industry and academia, the hurdles they confronted along their academic path, and the hindsight wisdom they've gained about what they might have done differently if they could revisit those formative years.

Upcoming Speakers
