East West Manufacturing is proud to be a sponsor of the University of Florida's Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering Seminar series! The series, titled "East West Manufacturing Scott Ellyson Seminar Series" is titled after Scott Ellyson, CEO of East West, and graduate of the University of Florida's ISE program.
The seminar features speakers who share new research initiatives, as well as connecting students with beneficial contacts in the field. A couple recent featured speakers include Dr. Yunes, Associate Professor of Management of Science at the University of Miami; Dr. Ralphs, Associate Professor of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Lehigh University, as well as Dr. Pazour, Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering and Management System at the University of Central Florida.
Dr. John Birge, a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) is a featured upcoming speaker in the East West Manufacturing Scott Ellyson Seminar Series at UF.
The Seminar Series has added some great benefits to the ISE department, including increased exposure of the the department and increased awareness among undergraduate students who have taken an interest in attending the research speeches.
A "Gator" at heart, Scott spends as much time as he can giving back to current Engineering and MBA students by speaking to them about topics such as: Global Supply Chain Management, Offshore Manufacturing, and Leadership. The East West Manufacturing - University of Florida partnership is off to a great start!
