Student Testimonial

Through the ISyE Co-op program, Kate Azar spent the 2017-2018 academic year working at HUSCO, a Wisconsin company that specializes in designing and manufacturing components for cars and off-highway vehicles. She worked in three different departments—quality, supply chain, and manufacturing—for four months each, helping her develop a big-picture understanding of the factors that affect product quality.

“HUSCO’s rotational program allowed me to experience more and better narrow down what I’m interested in—it was like three internships in one,” Kate said. She credits the Co-op for renewing her interest in data analytics, which prompted her to take more analytics courses and consider pursuing a master’s degree in this area of concentration.

After earning her Bachelor's in ISyE in 2019, Kate was hired by Boston Scientific as an Industrial Engineer I.
