Two industrial Engineering students, Alex Antholzner and Huzaifa Hussain, recently achieved top honors at the Freestyle O.R. Supreme 2023 Competition, securing 1st place. This accomplishment took place during the Annual INFORMS Conference, held in Phoenix, AZ, where practitioners in the fields of operations research, management science, and analytics gathered to explore the forefront of the field.  


The competition presented a real-world challenge in an unorganized format, requiring creative problem-solving with a blend of engineering and business perspectives. Their victory not only demonstrates their exceptional problem-solving skills but also exemplifies the excellence that the NMSU IE program fosters.
