The ISE Department works with a wide network of partners. Listed below are nine ways in which ISE and the professional community are working together for mutual benefit.
Got your own idea? We are always eager to explore new and creative ways to team up with our alumni and industry friends.
1. Philanthropy and Sponsorship
Outside support through philanthropy and sponsorship allows us to enhance our programs. The ISE Enhancement Fund addresses one of the department’s greatest needs, discretionary support. These funds allow the Department Head to quickly respond to these opportunities and challenges. It also enables us to increase the number of graduate fellowship, undergraduate scholarships, and much more. For more information, contact Mike Walsh | firstname.lastname@example.org |
2. Project Opportunities
ISE’s Senior Design course is a chance to work with students who can analyze your proposal and provide valuable solutions. For more information, contact Dr. Kanton Reynolds | email@example.com | 919.515.0605.
4. Summer Camp Opportunities
You can interact with future ISE students through class presentations and hand-on exercises. This is a great way to expose students to what it’s like to be an industrial engineer. For more information, contact Jason Low | firstname.lastname@example.org | 919.515.1424.
5. Tours of Industrial Facilities
Have students tour your industrial facilities. This is a great opportunity for students to see principles taught in the classroom getting put into action. For more information, contact Dr. Rohan Shirwaiker | email@example.com | 919.515.6414.
6. Cooperative Education (Co-ops) and Interships
Co-ops and internships allow you to work with some of the nation’s top students. They give you the opportunity to test a student’s effectiveness and potential as a future employee. Students also benefit by gaining valuable work experience. For more information, contact Dr. Julie Swann | firstname.lastname@example.org | 919.515.6423.
Interested in our students? We encourage you to send job announcements to the department. You can also post right on our social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. For more information, contact Dr. Julie Swann | email@example.com | 919.515.6423.
