First Annual ISE Alumni Networking Event

Nearly 100 Industrial and Systems Engineering alumni and faculty joined Dean Tom Farris and Chair Mohsen Jafari to celebrate the inaugural ISE Alumni Networking Event in early May at Battellos Restaurant in Jersey City. Graduates from 1968 through 2015 reconnected amid breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline.

Special recognition was extended that evening to Paul Lomelo (ENG'96, GSNB'02), recipient of the department’s first Outstanding Contribution Award, and Sofia Hernandez (ENG'16) recipient of the German Center for Research and Innovation Foundation Engineering Prize 2016.

The energy generated at the event was truly remarkable and plans are already underway for additional alumni programs. Please watch for details about the first ISE Industry Day this fall – an opportunity for alumni and friends to introduce their companies to current students and faculty – and the second annual ISE Alumni Networking Event, already scheduled for Thursday, May 4, 2017.
