After serving our department as an Assistant Professor for the past five years, Dr. Li Zeng will be leaving UT Arlington. During her time at UT Arlington, she was very involved in COSMOS (Center on Stochastic Modeling, Optimization, and Statistics). Her research focused on statistical modeling, applied statistics and analysis and control of complex manufacturing processes. She also taught classes on Engineering Probability, Applied Regression Analysis, and Statistical Process Control. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors and career.
UT Arlington Industrial Engineering students joined UT Southwestern medical students and nurses in a Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Boot Camp this summer. The week-long program was focused on developing team-based problem solving skills focused on improving patient care.
The Industrial Engineering students participating include Christopher Leonhard, Priyadarsini Subramanian, Abira Syed, Ashkan Farahani, Jasmine Lucero, and Davis Hoang. The Boot Camp was hosted by the faculty from UT Arlington and UT Southwestern.
The UT Arlington Chapter of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) has been awarded the GOLD Student Chapter Recognition award for the chapter’s improvements, progress,and overall achievements in 2014-2015.
The faculty advisor, Dr. Jamie Rogers, said that the group has won many of the IIE GOLD awards before and continues to strive to maintain that standard.
This is the highest award given to student chapters and gives UT Arlington public recognition and visibility. The award is determined by a point system measuring improvement trends and progress tracking.
Congratulations to the hard-working team!
