WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue students had the opportunity to interact with technology leaders from General Electric on Wednesday.
The GE technology leaders traveled from New York to West Lafayette to show students the latest research. It was called GE's Technology Showcase.
The leaders came from GE's global research center. Students were able to learn about the latest medicine and manufacturing.
According to GE University Relations Manager Tony Denhart, they showed new findings to students and faculty.
“(The leaders explained) advanced manufacturing, what we call the industrial internet, oil and gas, energy and the future of medicine, but this showcase is for the students. We come to campus for the students and that's what it's all about,” said Denhart.
Denhart said GE activities will continue for Purdue students on Thursday.
