u. s. Great Lakes Region

Welcome to the IISE U.S. Great Lakes Region Web page

If you are one of the more than 1,200 IISE members anywhere in the states of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, or Michigan, then you are in the right place. Our vision is to use this site as a clearinghouse for the IE-related information and opportunities throughout the region, especially to reach out to our many members who are outside of the service area of our professional chapters. Help us make this site a value-added benefit for our region's members.

Jumpstart your career! In addition to various competitions that allow the winners to present at the IISE Annual Conference and Expo 2016 in Anaheim, California, attendees can network with and listen to speakers from industries, take plant tours to learn about processes and potential employers, and start forming their own professional networks with other up-and-coming students.
