Biomedical, Industrial, and Human Factors Engineering

Bharathwaj Vijayakumar, '11 M.S. IHE

“The MS in IHE program at WSU helped me to get practical experience with real-world problems and taught me all the necessary skillsets to solve those real-world problems. My thesis was about optimizing surgery scheduling at a VA Medical Center and I gained significant experience and knowledge in optimization after completing my thesis. The only experience I had on my resume was my thesis and I got my first job in marketing just based on the tools and techniques I used in my thesis. I realized the potential of this program only after graduating as I was able to see a great demand for my skillsets in various industries. Now I am working in higher education and soon I will be moving to some other industry as the skills I have learned at WSU has given me a solid foundation.”
