What is IISE?
To start, IISE stands for Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers and we are a student chapter of the larger professional organization. There are student chapters of IISE at numerous colleges across the country, some of whom we get to meet and interact with at conferences. The professional organization hosts numerous webinars and events throughout the year that are accessible to all national members. Fortunately, our student chapter offers national membership at a greatly discounted price!
We like to say that IISE has three "pillars" - academic, professional, and social. Our organization reloves around these pillars, doing our best to focus on the three of them equally.
Pillars of IISE
IISE is an environment for ISE students to connect with students they know or recognize from their classes.
We all take the mostly same classes, so our members tend to work in study groups and support each other in their courses through the organization. Upperclassmen often offer their advice and suggestions on classes to take and what to expect.
IISE offers members exclusive access to:
A broad and passionate alumni network
Opportunities to attend conferences
Information sessions with companies looking to hires Ohio State ISE's
A consulting team
And a resume bank for active members, which our sponsor companies have access to and like to hire from!
IISE is a great place to meet and get to know the students that you will see almost every day for at least 2 years of college.
We have happy hours, trivia nights, and other social events to encourage members to connect with their peers in a more relaxed setting.
Many members will tell you that they have met some of their best friends through IISE. We like to say that we're the engineers that still bust our tails and still know how to have fun come the weekend!
