The OU School of Industrial Engineering took 19 students to Stillwater Feb. 19 for the IIE Regional Technical Paper Competition. The event was attended by students from across our region including Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Two OU IE teams presented their work in the competition and both did an outstanding job.
Congratulations to Kaycee Wilson (BS'10 and current MS student) and Tobi Olusola (BS'10 and current Pharmacy student) for winning top honors at the conference. Their paper, "Balancing the Flow of a Multi-Pallet Process", developed originally for their capstone course, won first place. They will now get to compete against the winners of the other regions at the national conference this May in Reno, Nevada.
Congratulations also to Ali Shakroun (BS'10), Miguel Ortiz (BS'10), and Fahad Khan (who will graduate May 2011) for their third place finish. Their paper, "How Camera View Affects Task Time and Performance on a Remote Control Car", developed originally for their research methods course, won third place.
