Welcome to the Fall 2023 Semester!
This month, we talk with Dr. Kari Babski-Reeves, Department Head and Larry G. Brown Professor of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and Associate Dean of the Bagley College of Engineering. She speaks with us about what industrial engineers do, what inspired her research and to become an engineer, and what you can study in the ISE department. Industrial engineering is such a versatile degree! Learn more about ISE today!
Babski-Reeves received her Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. degrees in Industrial Engineering from Mississippi State University in 2000, 1998, and 1995 respectively. She joined the ISE faculty in June 2006, after serving on the faculty at Virginia Tech. She also is a Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE).
Mississippi State’s athlete engineering program is rapidly gaining ground in the science of wearable technology and human assessment — a growing field that holds exciting potential for improving athletic performance and mitigating injuries.
