I am a professor and graduate coordinator in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department at Wichita State University. My research interests is on applied optimization, sustainable engineering, energy efficient production planning, transportation/logistics and healthcare management. Please check my personal webpage if you would like to learn more about me. Below you will find how you can contact me, advising process and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs).
My office hours during Fall 2014 semester is Monday/Wednesday 1pm-2pm, or by appointment. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (316-978 3426) me for an appointment. Please provide me few alternative time slots since my calendar may not be up to date.
As graduate coordinator, I am the faculty advisor for new graduate students, certificate programs students, and students who choose an all-course option Masters Program such as Masters in Engineering Management, and Masters of Science in Industrial Engineering. All new graduate students will be provided with advice on courses to be taken during their first semester and a clear map of the program requirements each student must meet to complete the program. This planning must be documented on a Plan of Study.
Graduate students must file a plan of study (POS) in their first semester. POS forms and sample POS are available via the Links for Graduate Students. During your study at IME, revising a POS may be needed for a variety of reasons, e.g., a student may take another course which is not listed on his/her POS, or student has a new advisor to pursue for a program with project, thesis or dissertation. Sample POS to illustrate how updates can be made are also available.
All graduate students should take an appointment to discuss your POS. I highly encourage you to take the following steps during this process:
