My name is Bora Turgut, and I am a 4th year at RIT majoring in field of Management Information Systems. During my time at RIT, I've had the privilege to attend classes that were taught by extremely knowledge professors with significant field experience; a critical component to truly understanding a subject. I recently had the opportunity to go on a 6 month co-operative assignment with Johnson and Johnson. I was part of the Business Analytical team, which supports the supply chain organization out of the consumer location in Skillman, NJ. A majority of my role consisted of supporting supply, demand, and plant planning operations within Johnson and Johnson. At the end of my term I was given the offer to extend my co-op status for another month, in which I happily accepted. I worked remotely from home helping develop a new report template for Neutrogena, which is based out of Los Angeles. This report gave the ability for Neutrogena to measure their production planning capabilities for each individual material being produced at their plant in weekly buckets. Overall, I am very grateful for having this opportunity with Johnson and Johnson. If it wasn't for RIT, this would have not been possible. My life has now changed for the better due to the exposure I received from the real world.
Hello my name is Li Huang, and I am 4th year MIS major at the Saunders College of Business. Currently I am doing on co-op in the Purchasing Department here at Toyota, specifically in the Project Management group. One of the responsibilities we as a group have is to manage annual activities. There are three main activities our group manages each year that provide the guidelines for our buying group and for the reports for Toyota headquarters in Japan. Usually the activities can take over half a year to complete. My job is to help a specialist in the group who currently leads these activities, and to also assist the group assistant manager. Along with my main projects I have two weeks of purchasing department training in addition to other Toyota required training.
I am the project manager of GE Transportation's server virtualization. I coordinate the technical teams, often times internationally, who transition physical servers located at the GE Transportation plant to virtual servers that are stored using cloud software. I also manage and monitor the existing virtual servers, ensuring that they are running at optimal efficiency. This project has immense financial implications and will save the company a reputable amount of time and money. The MIS program at RIT has developed both my technical abilities and business knowledge to the point where I am able to effectively enter this multinational company and immediately make a notable impact. I am proudly a Management Information Systems major and I will be graduating in 2014.
