Bukkapatnam is a professor in the department and director of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s Institute for Manufacturing Systems, and Malavè is the head of the department.
The Fellow Award recognizes outstanding leaders who have made significant, nationally recognized contributions to industrial engineering. This is the highest classification of IISE membership.
Bukkapatnam and Malavè are both leaders in promoting industrial engineering and continue to enhance the impact of the industry through promotional activities. They have each served in national and international groups relating to industrial engineering and work to enhance the visibility of the industry. These qualities, among others, qualify Bukkapatnam and Malavè for this honor.
