Hats off to Anna Konstant, a master’s student in industrial engineering, whose team took 1st place in the Innovation Design Competition at the annual conference of the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers in Orlando. The team – which also included students from Texas Tech, University of Texas at Arlington, and George Tech – developed an app to help people plan parties and won the pitch competition.
