WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue President Mitch Daniels will discuss the future of technology at the university and participate in a Q&A session at 6 p.m. March 19.

The event, titled “Academic Technology: Mitch Daniels,” will be held in the Wilmeth Active Learning Center, Room 1055. The discussion is presented by the Purdue chapter of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers in partnership with Purdue Engineering Student Council, Sigma Chi fraternity and Delta Sigma Pi fraternal organization.

Though the event is tech-focused, questions on all topics, especially how the university prepares students for life after Purdue, are encouraged, according to organizer Ankit Maewall.

A prevalent problem in my generation is recent alumni changing positions multiple times post-graduation,” said Maewall, a senior majoring in electrical engineering. “My mission is to improve post-graduation satisfaction by aligning students’ career interest with their passion while at school. I want to empower my peers with the tools and experiences to choose happiness.”

Admission is free for students and faculty, but an RSVP is required for a chance to obtain a ticket. Attendees are asked to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure seating. General public and those unable to attend can view the event and submit questions via livestream at http://purdueieee.org/ or the page.
