Industrial Engineering Turns 100. Yay.

Courtesy of Tara Carson

And they threw a party to celebrate. No word on if there were 100 candles on the cake, but the celebration, which drew 300 attendees, lasted from April 3rd to the 4th at the Nittany Lion Inn and Leonhard Building, so it must have been quite a rager. You know how those Industrial Engineers can be! One minute it’s all problem sets and the next is all “Let’s get wasted!”.

But what’s the big deal? I’m sure there are TONS of hundred year old Industrial Engineering departments.

Founded in 1909, the Harold and Inge Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is the oldest industrial engineering department in the nation and currently ranks as a top five program in the country. With a roster of 24 student-oriented faculty members, Penn State IE focuses on quality, hands-on education and concentrates on addressing today’s most pressing issues through innovative research in our state-of-the-art facilities.

Oh. I see. Very well then, carry on.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
