Penn State Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Society

The Penn State Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Society (PSIMES) was established in 1998 as an affiliate program group of the Penn State Engineering Alumni Society. PSIMES works to stimulate the continued interest and professional development of all graduates of the Marcus department and acts as an informal advisory board to the head of the department. The group strives to promote fellowship and communication among industrial engineering (IE) alumni, faculty and students in order to actively work for the improvement of the department and the College of Engineering.

PSIMES sponsors both a Mentoring Program between alumni and current IE students, as well as a Job Shadowing Program that allows students to see firsthand the rigors and rewards of working in industry.

The society, along with the Marcus department, also oversees the annual Graduate of the Last Decade Award and the Faculty Appreciation Award nomination and selection processes.
