University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Update

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will be hosting the 2016 North Central Regional IIE Student Conference. The chapter is excited to have 200-250 students from the region join them, especially because they are only starting their second year of being a nationally recognized chapter.  The conference will be held February 25-27, 2016, however planning has been going on from August of 2014.  All IIE chapters within the North Central Region are invited to attend this conference and information will be sent to chapter presidents in the fall.  There currently are 16 members of the IIE chapter at Illinois working in committees to make this an unforgettable experience for all who attend.  These committees include social media and marketing, plant tours and workshops, meals and banquet halls, transportation and social events.  During this three day conference, the UIUC chapter is hoping that attendees are able to learn more about Industrial Engineering and the different options they have following graduation, network with executives from a variety of different fields and companies, and maybe even meet a new friend or two from another school in our region. If you are looking to attend this conference, registration will open in the fall.  In the meantime, any questions or concerns regarding conference can be directed to the planning committee at
