Making a difference in 2014 -- and beyond!

Abhi DeshmukhHappy new year to all of the Purdue IE family! 

As we begin another new year on Purdue's campus, excitement continues to grow about the many things happening here in the School of Industrial Engineering.  In this edition of the Purdue IE Webletter we have the opportunity to highlight an alumnus and a faculty member who are making a real difference for Purdue IE and beyond.  Additionally, we're offering a link to our most recent issue of IE Impact, for anyone who may have missed it in the mail.

I invite to you to read these items and more in this issue of the Webletter and be reminded of the impact that Purdue IE has on the world every day!
