On April 14, the Cullen College’s industrial engineering (IE) department hosted its annual IE Honors and Awards Banquet at Brady’s Landing.

The event brought together IE students, alumni, faculty and staff to celebrate outstanding students with scholarships and awards, including the Dr. Ben Amaba Scholarship, the Melody Kathryn Snider-Porter Women in IE Scholarship and many more. Department chair Gino Lim also recognized instructional associate professor Eylem Tekin with the Outstanding Teacher Award.

Attendees also paid tribute to Benjamin Ostrofsky, an influential IE faculty member who passed away earlier this year.

Associate professor Lawrence Schulze introduced IE student chapter officers and Lim and Jose Pedroz, president of UH’s Institute of Industrial Engineers student chapter, provided closing remarks.

The event was sponsored by Cintas, Piping Technology and Products, and Randal Sitton, instructional associate professor of industrial engineering at the Cullen College.
