Founded in 1948, IISE is an international, nonprofit association that focuses on providing leadership, education, and training in diverse areas of industrial and systems engineering. It is considered the world’s largest professional society, with the greatest impact among IE students.
As the UPRM Chapter, we are the main student organization in our campus working on the particular needs of our industrial engineering community and is the biggest Industrial Engineering organization within the Industrial Engineering department of the UPRM. Our key commitment is to offer our student members the opportunity to apply the concepts learned in the classroom throughout real-world problem applications and thus preparing them for the practice of engineering. Also, with our focus areas of academic, professional, social and community, we aim to take students’ concerns about any lack of skills or resources and incorporate them into our plan of activities to facilitate learning and networking opportunities, helping them become well-rounded professionals.
IISE Vision
Our IISE UPRM Chapter vision is to be the leading student organization within the UPRM Industrial Engineering Department whose primary function is to promote the education of our members in the Industrial Engineering profession and related fields.
