||As a rapidly growing engineering field, Industrial Engineering (IE) is concerned with the optimization of complex processes, systems, or organizations by developing, improving and implementing integrated systems of people, information, equipment, energy and materials. This research seminar will provide a brief introduction to IE with a focus on the exciting IE education and research programs at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. The following research topics will be presented:
In addition to research highlights, graduate scholarship/fellowship opportunities, especially for minority applicants, are shared. Job placements of recent graduates (faculty, research scientist, process engineer, data scientist, etc.) will be discussed to demonstrate the competitiveness of a Ph.D. degree in IE from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. Speakers: Drs. Rebekah Sweat (Downes) and Yanshuo Sun are assistant professors in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. Rebekah graduated from the math department at UNF in 2011 before pursuing her PhD in Industrial Engineering.
- Innovative applications of integer programming in emerging shared mobility systems;
- Anomaly detection in temporal, network and geographical data balancing the probabilities of false alarms and misdetections;
- Advanced predictive analytics for the determining the lifespan and maintenance schedule of composite structures that are sensitive to cracking and damage;
- Artificial intelligence (AI) developments for collaborative robotic 3D printing.
