The School of Industrial Engineering held a Commencement Reception for graduating IE students on Sunday, Dec. 18. The event was held in the Peter Wang Student Excellence Center in Grissom Hall. In spite of very cold weather, many graduates attended with their family and friends.

The School graduated 32 Master's students and nearly 80 undergraduates. Four PhD students graduated as well: Yaowu Hu, Hsin-Ying Huang, Juan Jose Nativi Nicolau, and Sara Shashaani.

Family and friends from the U.S., China, Guatemala, India, Iran, Kazakhstan, Korea, the U.K., and many other places attended. Congratulations to all!
