“The IE department at the University of Louisville has provided me with amazing opportunities. One of these opportunities include being able to participate in undergrad research to further my knowledge of different facets of industrial engineering. The faculty played a huge part in leading me into research and I am so thankful for their support and interest in my success. Beyond that, the required co-op program gives invaluable experience that really prepares students for their future careers.”
“Coming into Speed School, I was extremely nervous about the difficulty of classes I’d be taking and if I would be able to handle it all. However, after my first semester, I realized there was nothing to be worried about as all the professors and PAL leaders are extremely supportive and want the best for you. When I started taking more IE based classes, that support and encouragement only increased. The IE department really makes sure that you understand what you are learning, but also that you know how to apply it to a real life job. I am in my first co-op rotation at Johnson and Johnson, and almost all of the things I have learned in the IE department, I use at my job daily. I am very thankful to be a part of such an amazing department that knows how to set you up for success.”
“I love the Industrial Engineering department at Speed School so much I decided to stay for a 5th year! For me, the curriculum and professors within the IE department made for an ideal learning environment that encouraged me to strive for what I once thought impossible for myself. With endless opportunities to attain relevant coursework coupled with required engineering co-ops, Speed School’s IE students graduate with all the tools necessary to succeed in today’s engineering world and beyond!”
“The best decision I made in college so far was majoring in Industrial Engineering. I have always been interested in the STEM field and after learning more about IE, I knew this was the path I wanted to take. I am currently doing undergraduate research as well as doing a co-op with GE Appliances which both help me use what I have learned in the classroom and apply it to the real world. With a supportive group of peers and IE professors, I am only excited to see where I can go from here.
