  • Featured Alumna: Juli Trexler
    After talking with Trexler Smith thought she would be the perfect industrial engineer It was the mix of people and technical skills that drew me to industrial engineering said Trexler For the record Carolina accepted my application and I got to turn them down Score one for the Wolfpack In the mid nineties the industrial engineering department was in the Park Shops building The most memorable times I have are from Park Shops recalled Trexler We would hang out at Park Shops and we would study at Park Shops It was just the place to be During her last two years at State Trexler decided to complete four co op rotations with IBM A decision she believes was the secret to getting that first job out of college Co op That is the advice I would pass along to current ISE students recommended Trexler Intern co op or whatever work experience you can get When I interview people now the grade point average gets them in the door but then after the GPA I look at any work experience A person with work experience has a significant advantage over someone who just went through school alone Trexler believes that students with work experience can walk through the door and add value much more quickly They can take the concepts out of their textbooks and apply them in the real world While co oping at IBM Trexler served in a traditional industrial engineering role on the manufacturing floor She performed time studies work load capacity modeling ergonomics and parts inventory optimization But it wasn t until she applied the skills she had learned in class did she truely understand the concepts There were a lot of Oh that s what they meant moments that semester admitted Trexler Even using a spreadsheet
