Partnerships between industry and higher education are important to the long-term success of the automotive sector. We are eager to see these relationships continue to form throughout the state to fuel innovation and build a qualified, top-notch workforce to support a growing statewide economy. Purdue and Chrysler have it right, and serve as an example of how industry and academia can work together toward mutual success.
