Industrial Engineering Graduate Student Honored by Toppel Career Center

On February 20, Busra Keles, a PhD candidate at the University of Miami College of Engineering’s Department of Industrial Engineering (IEN), was honored with the Graduate Student of the Year award at the 3rd Annual Toppel Awards.  The Student of the Year Award is presented to a graduate and undergraduate student for their personal achievements, contributions to their organization/work site, demonstrated personal and/or professional growth, evidence of leadership and academic record.

The award recognizes Keles’ work in the Anthony Burns Center for Advanced Supply Chain Management (CASCM) under the direction of Murat Erkoc, associate professor in IEN and director of the UM CASCM. Keles has focused on the areas of aviation maintenance, repair and operating supply (MRO) through the development of mathematical models and effective solution procedures for scheduling, operations planning, inventory control, and business revenue management. She also has worked on the impact of systematic changes in weather on the supply and demand of beverages, as well as maintenance policies for systems subject to continuous-time deterioration, which may result in non-self-announcing failures.

Keles received her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey, and her master’s degree in industrial engineering from TOBB University of Economics and Technology also in Ankara, Turkey.

The Toppel Career Center’s mission is to help students and alumni develop career-related skills by providing high quality resources, services, programming, and events that will prepare them for a lifetime of career success.
