The bioeconomy is a significant contributor to the Indiana economy and faces challenges to due to globalization, consumer choice, and rising population. The bioeconomy of food security, defined by consistent nutrition for public health, is a global challenge facing a variety of global interests. Engineering Technology (ET) Pathways: the Food and Foodstuff Supply Chain is an NSF supported project based upon a collaboration of Purdue's College of Technology in West Lafayette and Ivy Tech Community College. The goal of ET Pathways is to create an advanced technical educated workforce for Indiana and the region and incorporates a Pathway model from 2 year to 4 year Engineering Technology degree programs. This video session was conducted at the Engineering Technology Summit in 2013 among Purdue College of Technology and Ivy Tech faculty and students. Chad Laux, PI for ET Pathways, discusses bioeconomy trends and how Purdue and Ivy Tech have created a Pathway model to meet Indiana's bioeconomy needs.
