“I would not have the job I have today if it wasn’t for the guidance I received from my peers/mentors and the opportunities that the ISyE Department had to offer during my time. Without these experiences and the opportunity to build these relationships, I wouldn’t have been as prepared to enter the real world and start my career!”
