Sierra Frech, Junior; Hannah Jarrett, Senior; Kylie White, Senior
The Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) student chapter was selected to host the 2017 IIE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference next February. Hosting provides UT a great opportunity to showcase its wonderful industrial engineering students, facilities, programs, faculty, and corporate relationships to roughly 300 industrial engineering students from ten other universities in the region. IIE regional conferences, which UT last hosted in 2011, are fantastic learning and networking opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students interested in learning how to apply industrial engineering principles throughout their careers. To assist the IIE student chapter in hosting the most successful regional conference to-date, please visit ise.utk.edu and select “Give to ISE”. Donations to the Industrial & Systems Engineering Fund throughout 2016 will be focused in support of our work to host an exceptional 2017 IIE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference. We are grateful for your gifts!
