IMSE Undergraduate Student Testimonial

I would recommend the IMSE program to any student who is interested in both business and engineering. The program is a lot of hard work, but the professors want you to succeed. You will finish with a competitive degree and highly sought skills. A final piece of advice - make a habit of going to office hours weekly and build relationships with your peers. I have met some of my best friends in this program!
