The Wm Michael Barnes ’64 Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University donated a 10-year $50,000 sponsorship for the Frank and Lillian Gilbreth Industrial Engineering Award given by the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE).
 
The department is the first sponsor of this award since its inception in 1962. The award is the highest, most esteemed honor given by the IISE. It recognizes individuals for their contributions to the profession.
 
“Our department has recipients of this award, including Dr. Kem Bennett in 2016 and the late Dr. Ralph Lynde Disney Jr. in 1993,” said Dr. Lewis Ntaimo, department head for industrial and systems engineering. “Some of our faculty are heavily involved with IISE, and we are very supportive of this commitment. My department sees IISE as a flagship organization and we want to continue to support the organization, especially during these difficult times.”
 
Eligible candidates must possess demonstrated contributions to the benefit of humanity in at least two of the following areas: management, technical achievement, innovation or patents and research.
 
Candidates for this award also must have represented industrial engineering to the public and the profession in three of the following five areas: publications, public relations interdisciplinary activity, humanitarian service and service to IISE.
