Institute of Industrial Engineers
Jared Dunlap, Student President
The purpose of the organization is to promote the industrial engineering profession and to acquaint students with the ideas, purposes and objectives of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE). The group is comprised of undergraduate and graduate WVU engineering students.
The IIE group meets about every month for informal, interesting meetings. At least once a semester, speakers present lectures on a wide variety of subjects ranging from interveiwing techniques and what to expect in your first job to discussions on technical areas of industrial engineering. Tours of area plants and facilities are planned at least once a year to offer students a chance to become familiar with different types of work environments. During the spring semester, many of the IIE students attend the IIE student regional conference. This allows WVU students a chance to learn about other universities, attend informative paper sessions, and socialize with students from around the region.
In addition to meetings and talks, the IIE organization offers many opportunities to socialize with other studnts in Industrial and Managements Systems Engineering at various picnics, games, parties and banquets.
