Construction Division

IIE's Construction Division brings together members who are involved in all facets of the construction industry, such as design, value engineering, project management, research, safety and ergonomics. With these combined resources, we hope to bring to the construction industry a rich supply of knowledge, innovation and experience that can have the kind of positive impact that IEs have long used to bring the manufacturing and service industries to superlative levels of performance. Review the Construction Division mission statement.

Social Media 

We are looking to conduct a "member spotlight" in subsequent newsletters where we featured a member of the IIE Construction Division and discuss how they incorporate industrial engineering into their professional or academic work in the field of construction. Essentially, content is comprised of a brief write-up on yourself, your interest in industrial engineering and/or construction, and a look at how you got into your field.

We would love some volunteers to sign-up or for individuals to get "nominated" individuals; please contact Carl Kirpes, and he will send a prompt to any interested parties or nominees!

Lastly, if you still have yet to do so, please join and interact with our LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter pages!

Wanted: Construction articles for Industrial Engineer magazine 

The Construction Division invites members to submit articles on construction topics through our publications committee for publication in the monthly Industrial Engineer magazine. We would like to see IE-related articles about construction included in the Industrial Engineer magazine on a regular basis, and we are starting by determining which members are interested, and the topics that they would like to write about. At this point, we would just like to see a brief outline of the topic(s) that you wish to write about. Following that we plan to provide you with the detailed publication requirements, such as the format and length to be observed for each article. By working together, we can organize our articles in a sequence that will be most interesting and informative for our readers. Please contact Bobby Smyth.

International Correspondents – The Construction Division has a special opportunity for members who wish to serve as international correspondents.

Mentoring and Internship Opportunities for IE Students in the Construction Industry – One of the goals of the Construction Division is to assist members in becoming actively involved in the construction industry.
