Senior Design Team Wins First Place at 2012 IIE Southeast Regional Conference Paper Competition
A team of undergraduate students in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE), who won the fall 2011 Senior Design Competition, continue to receive high honors for their project sponsored by Railcar Management, Inc. (RMI). During the 2012 IIE Southeast Student Regional Conference February 16-19, the students received first place in the Undergraduate Student Technical Paper Competition for their project “Private Fleet Optimization.”
The conference was made up of students from fifteen different schools that all came together to network with their peers and future colleagues, and to further their interest in industrial engineering.
Additionally, the team has been invited to attend The 2012 Annual IIE Conference and Expo in Orlando, Florida May 19-23, where their paper will compete against the first place papers from other regions.
