Biography
Jessye Bemley is a recent PhD grad that attended North Carolina A&T State University within the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. My research allows me to solve problems using mathematical models and simulations using computers. Some of my projects include: 1. A model that will determine the best amount of people and resources to respond to the Aids to Navigation after a hurricane. 2. Helping to develop a simulation to determine seaport productivity if disruptions or threats arise. 3. Developing model to calculate consumers sickness and death from food contamination events. Outside of engineering I love to do different sewing projects, crocheting, movies and traveling. Upon graduation I hope to teach at a university to encourage and be an example to girls to pursue STEM careers. I look forward to any questions you may have about engineering or life. Know that you can do anything you put your mind to.

    I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design in Spring 2014 but now am deeply regretting it. As much as I love art, it lacks the calculation and logic I desire from subjects like math and science. I've had an unfulfilling career in the fashion industry and really want to pursue industrial engineering, hopefully in the product development field. Would I need to get another Bachelor's Degree in engineering? Or would I be able to get into a Master's program with my art degree? Thank ...

    Hello Kacey,
    
    I am happy you are interested in Industrial engineering. Product development is really a fun area, especially because now you can get into 3D printing and things of that nature. To just start with the Masters maybe be possible depending ...

    Hi, I'm 16 and have thought about engineering as a possible career choice. It seemed like a suitable career, maths and the sciences are my favourite subjects and being involved in the process of developing ideas that mould the future is the description for my ideal job. However, once researching how others got into the field I feel as though I'm out of my breadth- many talk about making things and using structural toys when they were younger and other many achievements that I haven't done or ...

    Hello Yetunde,
    
    The great thing about engineering is that there are so many disciplines you can focus on just about anything. Some of them are Industrial & System, Electrical, Chemical, Civil, Environmental, Biomedical, Nuclear, Bioengineering, and ...

    Hello, I am a high school senior and I am trying to decide whether to take a path into engineering or biological sciences. The last few years I have always dreamed of pursuing a degree in Biology, however I have never informed myself about engineering. A month ago a friend of mine suggested that I should look into it, and I did. After some research I found out that engineering really interests me - especially Biomedical Engineering. However my concern is that I don't have the knowledge to ...

    Kristin,
    
    Although I am not in biomedical engineering I believe that anything you put your mind to you can do! Maybe you do not have all the skills now but there are tutors and people to help you through the math and physics classes so do not let ...
