Two professors from the Department of Industrial Engineering recently traveled to Greensboro, North Carolina, to visit North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Burak Eksioglu, professor and graduate program chair, and Ed Pohl, professor and department head, met with undergraduate students in an effort to recruit graduate students.
The team gave a presentation covering the opportunities available with the Department of Industrial Engineering at the U of A to undergraduate seniors. They also attended the Freshman Innovation Challenge while on campus. The overarching goal for trips of this nature is to reach out and recruit some of the top students from underrepresented schools into the U of A College of Engineering.
