Our Mission

The goal of the LSU IISE chapter is to provide professional and academic support to its members. The club hopes to be a platform for students to not only network with the professional world, but with their classmates as well. The chapter leaders hope that by offering enriching weekend courses, organizing visits to IISE conferences, and having professionals come share their stories, students will grow as academics, and develop a passion for industrial engineering.

The IISE Southeast Regional Conference (SERC) is a three-day event focused on professional growth, leadership development, and networking.

These conferences provide aspiring young leaders with skills and the knowledge essential to their success as engineers, as well as strengthen the student and professional chapters in each region. From all major schools in the United States southeastern region will congregate at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta in 2018.

Budd{IE}s Mentorship Program



During our bi-weekly Chapter meetings, we have special presentations from companies who are interested in recruiting LSU Industrial Engineering students for internships, co-ops, and full-time positions.  These discussions are beneficial to both the student chapter members and the companies as both parties gain an insight into what the other is looking for to help find the perfect match between employee and employer.


Plant tours held at facilities in the surrounding area allow our students to see how engineering work is applied in a real work environment at scale.


Once a semester an instructor is sent from the national organization for a weekend long Lean Green Belt training, or Six Sigma Course. The Lean Green Belt course is taught in the fall semester; students learn how to use the lean methodology of eliminating waste and achieving value-add in all processes in a continuous improvement objective. The Six Sigma Green Belt course is taught in the spring semester; students learn how to use the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) methodology to eliminating variability in complex systems. Students love these certifications because they make great resume and talking points during interviews, while setting them apart from other job candidates!


Our Mentorship program is intended to foster relationships between all new industrial engineering students and their older classmates . The program is a great way for transfer students and freshman to meet new friends and ease their transition into college, as well as gain helpful advice from their mentors.
