Systems Engineering the Future from Manufacturing to Health Care

Engineering has come a long way in our society. While mechanical, electrical and computer engineering jobs are constantly being outsourced, one field of engineering will be adding more jobs in the United States over the next 5 to 10 years- industrial and systems engineering. Come listen to featured speaker, Robert P. Judd as he discusses how Idustrial and System Engineers have contributed to improving activities that people encounter everyday. Robert Judd has twenty-five years of experience as an educator, researcher and consultant in system simulation, discrete events systems, and systems integration. This talk will also describe how industrial and systems engineering methods are now being used by traditional engineering disciplines.. If you’re interested in learning about what the future of engineering has to offer, then on Thursday, March 29 go to room 201 in Dodge Hall (campus map) at 4 p.m. and hear what all the excitement’s about.*
