About Matthew Verleger

Mathew Verleger is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering and Technology Education. In 2004, the National Academy of Engineers published “The Engineer of 2020: Visions of Engineering in the New Century,” vocalizing the pressing changes needed to help engineers succeed in the future. That same year, Purdue announced the creation of the nation’s first Department of Engineering Education. Similar departments were created shortly thereafter at Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Utah State, each with a vision for how to formalize the study of how engineers are taught. In this talk, Dr. Matthew Verleger, a member of the first cohort of graduate students admitted into Purdue’s Ph.D. program, presents his vision for the future of engineering education as a formal discipline.
