Dr. Sherri Messimer

Associate Professor, Industrial & Systems Engineering and Engineering Management

In terms of what I hope to instill in students, the Order of the Engineer says it best: As an Engineer, I pledge to practice integrity and fair dealing, tolerance and respect, and to uphold devotion to the standards and the dignity of my profession, conscious always that my skill carries with it the obligation to serve humanity by making the best use of Earth’s precious wealth."
