  • ISE Students vs The Global Economy
    we incorporated decision trees FMEA charts and other risk management tools into our assignments However our assignments were not one s typical Q A while discussing what you have learned One of the best qualities about ISE 495 was that it included case studies containing real life examples and problems that needed to be solved It was made clear that not every solution would be the same but that did not mean they were incorrect Another helpful bit of advice from that course as engineers we have to remember there is not only one right answer when it comes to business decisions We can collect data analyze trends and predict outcomes as much as we please but it has to be remembered that not all company decisions can be made using only formulas Responsibility also played a key factor during those six weeks With the city of Prague as our playground and what seemed like the world at our fingertips we did have to make sure our work was getting done For each case study we were divided into groups of three to four people Working around different schedules spotty Wi Fi and the daily distractions of Prague proved to be a challenge in itself All the while we were supposed to be solving companies problems as well It seemed impossible My favorite near catastrophic experience happened one of the first weeks there It was already a known fact that if you wanted internet access outside of the Institute you either had to stay up until all hours of the night or go to a nearby coffee shop I typically opted for the latter One night our third case study was due We were so close to completion that we forgot the Institute actually closed down and that meant no

  • BIGGER Bolder Brighter
    department of getting the best and brightest This past spring the incoming class of students who matriculated into the major had over a 3 5 GPA in courses taken at NC State Let s talk accomplishments The freshman class contains two students with Park Scholarships a prestigious four year scholarship awarded on the basis of outstanding accomplishments and potential in scholarship leadership service and character Only 44 were awarded university wide So why has ISE continued to experience this dramatic increase in enrollment According to Dr Paul Cohen Edgar S Woolard Distinguished Professor and Head The increase in popularity in industrial and systems engineering can be seen nationally as the Institute of Industrial Engineers and individual departments have done a better job of communicating what ISEs do and the manifold job opportunities The increasing interest in ISE can be directly attributed to the unending efforts of our recruiting team Lead by Dr Anita Vila Parrish Director of Undergraduate Programs and Jason Low ISE Lecturer the department always has a strong presence at all open houses information sessions and the E101 Intro to Engineering class In addition eight of the College s Engineering Ambassadors are in ISE The 1 reason incoming students give for their interest in ISE is the personal interaction they have with the ISE students faculty and staff at these engineering events We could not have the recruiting success that we have had without the involvement of ours students they are our best salespeople said Vila Parrish When perspective students hear current ISE students say I ve had meaningful internships studied abroad and know my faculty they listen These departmental groups work together to communicate the core message of the department delivering a high quality highly marketable education that students can use to pursue a career in a

  • Faculty Profile: Michael Kay
    of engineering classes Many Operations Research students are advised and mentored by ISE faculty Michael Kay joined the department in 1987 as a student working on his PhD and then stayed on as a faculty member after graduation in 1992 While at NC State he was named Associate Director of Graduate Programs in the ISE Department as well as an associate faculty member of the Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering Institute IMSEI His passion is teaching courses in production system design and logistics engineering Michael s research interests include logistics network design freight transportation material handling warehousing and metaheuristics A major focus of his research has been on the design and analysis of public logistics networks that would enable cost effective home delivery using reusable containers transported by driverless delivery vehicles Such a home delivery logistics network would make it possible to eliminate all non recreational shopping for most people In addition to general merchandise meals and groceries could be delivered to the home This would be especially important for the disabled and the elderly and would allow them to live in a typical sprawling suburban neighborhood and still have their shopping needs met without the need to drive Also since

  • ISE Professor Talks About Giving
    until it feels good It really does feel good Bernhard credits Susan Nutter Vice Provost and Director of Libraries for encouraging him to give to NC State At the time Bernhard was on the board of directors for Friends of the Library and with some of the money his parents left for him he donated a thousand dollars to Susan for a party for her and her staff But instead of a party Susan put the money into an incubator endowment in his daughter Barbara s name With Barbara s encouragement Bernhard and his wife Cynthia have started two more endowments one for each of their sons Since then Bernhard has had a group study room named in honor of his wife Cynthia Peterson Bernhard and a room in the faculty section in honor of his friend and colleague James R Wilson IV Both rooms are in the new Hunt Library located on Centennial Campus a great resource for ISE students and others Bernhard is also been an annual contributor to the ISE department You can really make a difference in the lives of students at NC State with the smallest donations says Bernhard And think of what an impact
