University regional conferences offer opportunities to begin your rise up
Students and young industrial engineers can jump-start their careers with IIE’s 2013 university regional conferences.
In addition to various competitions that allow the winners to present at the Annual Conference and Expo 2014 in Montreal later in the year, attendees can network with and listen to speakers from industries, take plant tours to learn about processes and potential employers, and start forming their own professional networks with other up-and-coming students.
