Mission Possible!

Do you think you have what it takes to make the impossible possible? Industrial Engineers can do it! Are you wondering how?  The extremely popular iPhone and iPad were launched with the skillfully trained Industrial Engineers behind the scenes. Industrial Engineers have to figure out where, when and how much to produce, to store and transport to the warehouses and retail stores across the country. We should thank Industrial Engineers for well run theme parks, like Disney World - where kids enjoy the parks with maximum activities, but with minimum wait time in lines. They are responsible for doctors utilizing operating rooms efficiently to serve patients, and are to thank for high quality automobiles, such as Ford, BMW and Porsche, tasty foods in Chic-fil-A, Subway and McDonalds, the solving of problems by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), space exploration by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and so much more.

In this one week summer program, you will participate in interactive learning sessions and field trips to learn how Industrial Engineers are currently changing the world and their plans to shape the future. The week will end with a game competition to demonstrate all that you have learned. Come and join the challenge to see if you have what it takes to become an Industrial Engineer and one day make the impossible possible!
