Congratulations to IEMS undergraduate students Stefan Calle, Geoffrey Cox, Brandon Finley, Jose Sang, Patricia Truax, and Colton Younger! The students’ technical paper won 1st place in the Undergraduate Student Technical Paper Competition held at the 2013 IIE Southeast Regional Conference hosted by the University of Miami IIE Chapter in Coral Gables, FL Feb 28-Mar 3. The students’ paper, which was presented by Stefan, was entitled “Utilizing Lean Principles to Improve the Screen Printing Process at ScreenWorks USA”, and the paper competed with five other papers from universities within the region.
With this win, the UCF Chapter represents the Southeast Region at the 2013 IIE Annual Conference & Expo in Puerto Rico May 18-22. This is the second consecutive year that the UCF IIE Student Chapter will represent the Southeast Region at the IIE Annual Conference & Expo. Last year, the 2012 1st place winner could not attend the IIE Annual Conference & Expo in Orlando, FL. So, the UCF Chapter, who garnered 2nd place at the Regional Conference hosted at Auburn University, represented the Southeast Region and presented at the Annual Conference.
