The Society of Reliability Engineers (SRE) is a non-profit organization whose major objectives are to develop, communicate, and advance the state-of the art of reliability techniques and to achieve greater effectiveness in the application of reliability principles. The SRE Huntsville Chapter, currently the largest chapter in the world, hosts the annual RAM Training Summit, which allows reliability and maintainability professionals in industry and government to collaborate ideas by combining presentations, tutorials, and networking with the elite among the RAM community.

This year the event was held here at UAH Conference Training Center on November 2nd and 3rd. Dr. Phillip Farrington was an organizer for the event. Three ISEEM faculty members--Drs. Paul Collopy, James Swain, and Bryan Mesmer--delivered 90-minute tutorials, and three of the six student sessions were presented by ISEEMers: Giulia Palma, Garima Bhatia, and Joseph Clerkin. All of the ISEEM student presenters received certificates and scholarship awards ($800-$1,000) for Outstanding presentations; Ms. Palma received Most Outstanding.
