IISE Northeastern will be hosting two Microsoft Excel seminars in March, one on different tools IEs frequently use in Excel, and one on VBA, Excel’s programming language. 


The seminars will be taught by Samuel Davis. Sam holds a BS and MS from Cornell University, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University, focusing his studies in Healthcare Systems Engineering. He has extensive experience both using and explaining the topics that will be covered in the course.

It is important to note that these courses will be taught based off of Microsoft Excel for PC Laptops. While you should still be able to follow along with the vast majority of the seminar if you have a MacBook, some of the concepts may be slightly different. The instructor will not have time to explain the differences in topics for MacBooks. MacBook users are welcome and encouraged to take part in the course, but please keep this in mind if you choose to do so.

Students may register to participate in both seminars, but please make sure you are committed to attending the courses before you register. There is limited space available, and we want to maximize the number of students participating!
