Seniors and the last 76 days

 As the semester comes to a close and seniors count down their days I thought it would be a good idea to do a series on seniors and their time at Lehigh. I will be focusing on seniors who are ISE majors and will be asking them: What is your favorite thing about the ISE…

ARENA

This semester I am taking one of the hardest ISE classes but if I’m being honest it is one of the most interesting ISE. ISE 305 IS 3 Credits and according to the Lehigh website it is : Applications of discrete and continuous simulation techniques in modeling industrial systems. Simulation using a high level simulation…

Iacocca internship

So if you have been following you will know that I have been trying to get an internship for the past semester. This is normal for Juniors and even though Lehigh does an amazing Job with getting Companies to come it is still nerve wrecking. I am pleased to announce that I have been chosen…

Second Semester Junior Year

Can we talk about the fact that next year this time I’ll be a senior and hopefully I’ll have a job secured and in the bag. This semester has been crazy even though my schedule is somewhat okay. Mondays and Wednesdays are my worst days but the rest of the week is filled with many…

Internships Part 2

1) My name is Andre Verduzco, I was born in Los Angeles, CA and have lived in Southern California my whole life. My favourite thing about Lehigh would be the campus, it’s hilly but that’s what makes it unique. My favourite class at Lehigh so far has been English 189 which analysed the TV Series Dexter,…

Internships

As internship application time rolls around everything may seem confusing so I’ve asked some fellow ISE’s about their internship experience. Check out my interview.   . My name is Cecilia Alfaro and I am from Guatemala. There isn’t just one specific thing I love about Lehigh, but two of my favorite things is watching the…

Make the Most of the Business We Call Life

Before taking part in the business minor here at Lehigh, I thought I understood how a business would function.  After taking classes and almost completing the program, I realize I was completely wrong!  Throughout the course of the two-year program, you touch the basics on accounting, advertising, marketing, and finance.  The minor isn’t paired with…

AutoComplete Project

In my CSE 017 class, rather than having a final exam, we were assigned a final project that is supposed to cover a large amount of the topics we discussed throughout the year.  The project is broken up into three deliverables, meaning there are two parts due before the submission of the final project.  We…

Industrial AND/OR Systems Engineering

Industrial engineering is a very wide field that encompasses many skills that can be applied to many different industries.  One of the best ways I ever read industrial engineering (IE) being described was that IE’s are “Into Everything.”   Industrial engineering focuses on optimization and efficiency through different uses of probability and statistics, programming, traditional…

Technical Electives and where to find them

As an enthusiastic Harry Potter fan, you’ll have to excuse my pun on “Fantastic Beasts and where to find them”. ISE Techincal Electives are not Fantastic Beasts but you may not know where to find them. As a Lehigh Industrial Engineer, you have to take at least 4 technical electives to graduate with a degree…
