The Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research successfully conducted a freshmen orientation last February 25 and March 3 at the GE Audio Visual room. The event was attended by incoming freshmen who passed the UPCAT together with their parents.

Dr. Iris Ann Martinez supported by the faculty made several presentations regarding the BSIE program in UP Diliman, including job nature and career opportunities for IE graduates. IE student representatives and leaders of the IE student organizations (IE Club and CIEM) also gave talks on initiatives and activities outside of academics. Alumni likewise rendered talks on work opportunities waiting for IE graduates when they enter the corporate world.

An open forum was then held where the faculty, alumni and student leaders capably answered all the concerns, questions and queries posed by the freshmen and their parents. A college-wide freshmen orientation was also held on May 7, 2012 followed by the early freshmen registration.
