IISE Students Attend Great Lakes Regional Conference
30 Ohio State IISE students attended the 2017 Great Lakes Regional Conference this past weekend at Ohio University. The theme was “Finding the IE in relief” and focused on how to create good by using IE and process improvement skills to benefit the world. The event included a variety of guest speakers, companies, workshops, networking sessions, and an industrial engineering-specific career fair. The students that attended gained skills applicable to all industries and learned more about the numerous career paths an industrial engineer can take after graduation.
OSU also competed in the conference’s simulation competition and brought home first place. The team was composed of Maria Pandolfi, Georgia Lindner, Gunnar Smyth, Brad Eckstein, and Daniel Chang. Ohio State IISE is looking forward to hosting the 2018 IISE Regional Conference next year.
