The Council of Industrial Engineering Academic Department Heads (CIEADH) and the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) will hold the 2016 New Faculty Colloquium May 21 preceding the IIE Annual Conference and Expo in Anaheim, California.

This all-day event was designed for new faculty, specifically junior faculty within their first three years on a tenure-track assistant professor appointment, to provide information that can be useful for successfully navigating the challenges of an academic career and gaining tenure and promotion. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions, network with peers, and interact with senior-level professors.

Pre-conference Workshops

Pre-conference workshops offer in-depth, skill-building tools and focus on the topics that you will require for career advancement and professional development. Enhance your learning experience and maximize your networking opportunities by attending one of our pre-conference workshops.

Vendor Presentations

Connect with the ideal resource for the latest in products and services for your projects. If you've been sourcing vendors for a special project, process improvement, training or new product development, be sure to make time to attend. It gives you time to get all your questions answered which will shorten your decision-making process. You're both at the conference. Why not save on travel and time by meeting during this time?
