The traditional ORIE student project competition is open to undergraduate students for project works in the field of industrial engineering-operations research.
Students may apply for the competition individually or as a team. There is no restriction on the number of members in the teams. Those who will participate in the competition must be undergraduate students on Jan. 1, 2018.
Projects will be evaluated according to the criteria such as identification and importance of the problem, accurate and appropriate use of OR/IE approaches, originality value of the project, independence from ongoing projects, possible widespread effects and applicability, success of the results obtained and writing report.
The first application to the competition is made with an extended abstract of the project work. The extended abstract must be prepared in accordance with the format rules on this link and must not exceed 4 pages with the cover page.
This abstract should include the project reason, the scope, the methods used and developed in the project, the overall evaluation and results of the project. The abstract document should not include any information that would lead to an understanding of the university where the project is made, the identity of the project team members and the faculty members who are consulting the project.

The project teams who passed the preliminary round among the first applications evaluated by the jury have the right to participate in the semi-final. Competitors who are chosen as semifinalists must prepare a project report that will not exceed 15 pages in accordance with the format rules of Journal of Industrial Engineering (https://www.mmo.org.tr/yayin/endustri-muhendisligi-dergisi/yazim-esaslari_). The report should not include any information that would lead to an understanding of the university where the project is made, the identity of the project team members and the faculty members who are consulting the project. Reports containing this information are strictly not evaluated. All data, software code and other supporting materials used to obtain the results in the report must be send with the report to the address yaem2018Ogrenci@gmail.com via e-mail.
