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…

Pinter has several areas of interest which mainly include operations research, nonlinear optimization, and software development and applications.  An avid learner, he considers these his…

Junior Year Schedule:

You would think that by this time I would be used to picking classes, registering, and being done with this semesters classes. Yet the butterflies that come with registering are still present as I wait for 7:00am on Tuesday. Picking classes at Lehigh is not rocket science but science does help and short keys are…

CSE 017: Objected Oriented

In my CSE 017 class, we began the year working with object oriented programming in java, which is conceptually fundamental to most coding.  We worked with inheritance, polymorphism, and abstraction before covering recursion.  Recursion is a very effective way of finding something in a collection, as it searches for a base case (what you are…

Working Abroad! The culture

This summer, as I mentioned in my preceding post, I was able to live and work abroad for eight weeks in Hong Kong.  Not only was the experience phenomenal for the exposure to the working world, but it provided so many cultural opportunities as well.  It certainly is quite the adjustment moving to the other…

Working Abroad! The Work Side of Things

  This past summer I had the privilege of working at Hutchison Port Holdings, a terminal port company based in Hong Kong.  I was afforded this opportunity through the Iaccoca Internship program that is run here at Lehigh.  I, along with three other Lehigh students, spent eight weeks in Hong Kong working at the company….

Career Fair

Career Fair Junior year is finally upon us and with 2 years of college under our belt, we are ready to tackle the last two years. It feels surreal to be done with two years of college but with that comes new responsibility, life changing decisions and preparing to be an adult. The first thing…
