Letter from the Chair: Winter 2016

Letter from the Chair, Dr. Leslie Monplaisir: 

Greetings students, colleagues, faculty, alumni, and friends! 

The Industrial & Systems Engineering Department has had a wonderful start to the New Year, and we have a lot of great success stories to share with you in this edition of the ISE Newsletter. From our faculty securing large NSF grants, to our IIE student chapter hosting a successful regional conference, we are proud and excited for all of the happenings in 2016. We encourage you to save the dates of March 23-24 for our 3rd annual Big Data Symposium, which is themed “Empowering your Organization,” and also April 1st (No fooling) for our Graduate Research Symposium. Read all about it in the articles below, and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event! 

Sincerely, 

Leslie Monplaisir, Chair Industrial & Systems Engineering Department Wayne State University
