A little bit about IIE…

The group is dedicated to furthering the involvement and understanding of Industrial Engineering for students through professional development activities and social events. These include company information sessions and field trips as well as attendance and technical paper competitions at the regional and annual conference. Most notably the chapter was able to bring four of the officers and three graduated members to the Annual Conference in Montreal May 31 to June 4. This year they will be working on having more frequent gatherings and varied seminars to show what opportunities are available in Industrial Engineering.
