Two IE Students Place at IISE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference

Clemson IE Students’ Jenny Byham and Emily Huffer

Congratulations to two Clemson Industrial Engineering students, Jenny Byham and Emily Huffer, who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively in the technical paper competition at this year’s IISE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference at West Virginia University. Jenny Byham presented on her research with Dr. Sarah Riggs on “Quantifying Eye Movement: Changes in Entropy and K-Coefficient,” and Emily Huffer presented her research exploring the question “Does Mobile Technology Make a Difference in Preparing for Surgery?” with Dr. Kevin Taaffe.

The Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers provides many opportunities for Industrial Engineering students at their conferences such as competitions, young alumni panels, keynote speakers, industry networking events, and plant & lab tours. Clemson University’s IISE chapter is excitedly beginning to prepare for their turn to host the IISE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference in 2021.
