On Sunday, December 16, 2012, the College of Engineering conducted its commencement ceremony at UTA’s College Park Center to recognize students who had completed their degrees during the Fall and Summer semesters. The Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Department graduated eleven undergraduate, twenty-eight master’s, and six doctoral students. We want to take a moment to congratulate all our graduates on their achievement. Below is the list of our Fall 2012 Graduates, as listed in UTA’s student newspaper.
The University of Texas at Arlington provides active on-campus recruiting opportunities for corporations. As a result, our Industrial and Manufacturing Systems graduates are employed in a variety of industries and businesses such as TXU, Bell Helicopter, Raytheon, General Motors, and Frito Lay. Being in the heart of the DFW Metroplex offers a great advantage to our students because of the relationships that the university and the department maintains with local industries. Alumni, local industry leaders, and job recruiters often contact the department about job openings and internships at their workplaces, such as the opening we just posted on the IMSE website for a student position as PressCut Industries. You can view details about the job opening here.
