We are fortunate to have two of our distinguished alumni come back to ISyE as Professors of the Practice and take residence in ISyE to teach and offer career advisement to our students. The objective of career development advising is to give ISyE students the opportunity to meet with an ISyE practitioner to discuss career objectives.
Career development meetings may include:
The discussion should not include:
"When you come to visit me for career advising, I won’t challenge what you think, but I may challenge how you think. The important thing is that I want you to be successful. And a crucial element of being successful, in whatever you do, is to manage your time. Time is the most important asset that any of us have – we can’t buy it or save it – once it’s gone it is gone. So make the most of your time here, and sample all that is here for you. Come by and let’s talk about what awaits your future."
I have worked in academia as a faculty; teaching and conducting research. I have worked in industry as an engineer, and as a researcher. My goal is to give you perspective on the professional practice of Industrial Engineering. When you meet with me, expect me to ask you big picture questions: What do you want to accomplish in your professional life? What kind of environment inspires you? Why did you choose IE as a major?
