Registration for the 2016 Winter session opens Nov. 4 for the 23rd annual IISE/Rockwell Undergraduate Student Simulation Competition.
Teams of three IE undergraduate students solve a real-world situational case study using the Rockwell Automation simulation package, Arena. This case study is prepared by Rockwell. Student team members and their faculty advisor are not required to be members of IISE to enter the competition, but they will become IISE members, for one year, if they are one of the three teams selected to compete at the finals courtesy of Rockwell Automation. The finalists must be able to attend the IISE Annual Conference & Expo May 20 - 23, 2017 in Pittsburgh.
Entries for the session opens Nov. 4. The deadline to enter is Jan. 6, 2017. If you register your team for the fall session, you will not be permitted to sign up again during the winter session.
