Happy 50th anniversary UW-Madison Industrial and Systems Engineering!

On Saturday, my department celebrated the 50th anniversary reunion since the ISyE was first established at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 50 years of excellence. Jeff Linderoth and alum Jessica Rannow did such a wonderful job live-tweeting the event that I will recap the reunion using tweets.

I gave a talk on airport security at the reunion. My slides are below.

I took out all the formulas in my talk and replaced them with comic strips and political cartoons. This comic strip was the highlight of my talk.

And finally, we celebrated at a lovely poster reception and banquet. Jeff Roznowski — Professor at the Milwaukee School of Engineering and author of “I am the Wisconsin Idea” — talked about the Wisconsin idea. Our alums really love the idea of UW-Madison giving back to the state and extending its influence past the boundary of campus. I’m glad they love the Wisconsin Idea as much as I do.
