Walter Thomas Towner
I am interested in manufacturing and industrial engineering. My main interests lie at the intersection of manufacturing processes and the financial aspect of the business that relates to these processes. I see my mission as enabling students to become leaders in a business environment and helping them extract value from the processes that drive the organization. We do this by using tools like axiomatic design and Lean Six Sigma methods. I like to frame the lectures in such a way that the students picture themselves in the field, supporting or leading members of the organizations and having an immediate impact on the operation. My courses often have a project at an off campus organization as well as in class mock management scenarios.
