A word from the program director
"I want to stress that this newsletter is by no means all-inclusive of the activites of our program for the past year. It is simply a summary of the highlights that we knew of. It is important for all students and alumni to keep in touch to let us know what new things you are doing. Send your business card when you change positions. If you meet an I/O IIT alum, please get a business card for me, since we are trying to find our alumni and keep them informed of what is happening in the program. The I/O program takes pride in the quality of students and alumni. Drop me a line or give me a call. Keep in touch."
Roya Ayman, Director
