TEXAS TECH IISE HOSTS REGIONAL CONFERENCE
The Texas Tech chapter of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) perennially receives the Gold Chapter award for excellent chapters. This spring, Texas Tech IISE hosted the 2017 IISE South-Central Regional Conference and Paper Competition from March 2nd to March 4th in Lubbock, Texas.
Over 110 undergraduate attendees from 10 different IE programs across the region, including University of Oklahoma, University of Arkansas, Mizzou, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M, joined the Red Raiders from our department for a weekend of professional development and networking. The weekend consisted of plant tours to local companies, professional workshops led by alumni and faculty, and a technical paper competition. Overall, the conference was a big success, and left attendees with a great view of Texas Tech, and the IMSE department.
