What was the most significant thing you learned today?

  • It made me aware of new work going on in the optimization area.
  • Everything! I had no background in the subject presented. 

Was this event useful to you? Was it what you expected? P

  • Yes.
  • Yes, but I expected something different.
  • Moderately so.
  • Yes, as a senior in Industrial Engineering I found it great to hear a presentation from a woman industrial engineer in an area different than any I have studied.

How might this kind of event be improved in the future?

  • The lecture might be given longer so that the speaker can explain the theories or concepts clearly.
  • A little background knowledge would help.
  • Better promotion.
  • Faculty should impress on our graduate students the need to attend.
  • It should be longer.
  • Improve attendance.
  • Why was there no Industrial Engineering Faculty?
  • Senior Undergraduate students would benefit from learning about other schools, research, & mentorship. Organizations such as SWE & MAPS would be good outreach tools.
