Nicole Pitterson, PhD, Engineering Education

Nicole Pitterson recently graduated with a PhD in Engineering Education from Purdue University, with background degrees in both Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering. During her studies here at Purdue, Nicole was involved in various engineering organizations such as the American Society for Engineering Education and Women in Engineering, along with other groups such as the Black Graduate Student Association, Adventist Collegiate Fellowship at Purdue, and Boiler OUT - a group focused on engaging in community service projects that focus on outreach, understanding, and teamwork. Nicole was also involved in the Minority Engineering Program during her time at Purdue. When reflecting on her time with MEP, Nicole responds, “I really appreciated the support and engagement I received from being involved with the MEP summer programs and subsequent interactions through the academic year.” After graduating in December, Nicole is currently working as a postdoctoral scholar at Oregon State University.
