Check out this feature story on the CSE website about our undergraduate student group University of Minnesota Robotics! The group is competing in the upcoming Land O' Lakes Bot Shot competition, only one of many competitions and projects that UMN Robotics is currently working on. Good luck on the upcoming competition!

UMN Robotics is up for three Tony Diggs awards this year: Outstanding Program (for their Robot in Three Days project),Outstanding Student Group, and People's Choice Award! Being named a finalist for the People's Choice Award means that UMN Robotics is also a finalist for the Outstanding Student Group Award as well. The ISyE Department is proud of UMN Robotics for their nominations, and we wish them the best. If you would like to vote for UMN Robotics in the Tony Diggs awards, visit  

Congratulations to ISyE Professor Lisa Miller for receiving the Horace T. Morse - University of Minnesota Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Contributions to Undergraduate Education! This award recognizes a select group of teachers for their outstanding contributions to undergraduate education. The ISyE Department is proud of Professor Miller for her major accomplishments and the recognition of her excellence in teaching.

We are happy to announce that ISyE Professor Guangwen Kong has been selected as the recipient of the 2018 M&SOM Meritorious Service Award.

University of Minnesota Robotics, the new ISyE undergraduate student group, has had a very successful start to the year! Participating in two competitions in January, the team has brought home two impressive wins. The student group's Autonomous Snowplow Team competed in Toronto in late January at the Institute of Navigation's Autonomous Snowplow Competition. They took 1st Place in the Poster Presentation to the committee and the staff at Sidewalk Labs and 1st Place in the Collaborative Challenge in which they navigated a complex "S" shape with no navigational aids and successfully cleared all of the snow. Another subgroup of University of Minnesota Robotics, the Vex U Team, also competed in a qualifying competition in St. Cloud in late January. They took 1st Place in the Skills portion of the competition and made it to semi-finals in the head-to-head competition. Their success qualified them for the Vex World Championship to be held in Kentucky in April 2019. Congratulations to our talented undergraduate students on their wins!

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering is happy to celebrate the research of its undergraduate students.
