Kappa Mu Epsilon is a specialized honor society that was founded in 1931 to promote the interest of mathematics among undergraduate students. Its chapters are located in colleges and universities of recognized standing which offer a strong mathematics major. The chapters’ members are selected from students of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standards of scholarship, have professional merit, and have attained academic distinction.

The primary purpose of KME include furthering the interests of mathematics, helping undergraduate students realizing the important role of mathematics, developing an appreciation of the power of mathematics, providing a society for recognition of the outstanding achievement in the study of mathematics, and disseminating the knowledge of mathematics.


Information Systems sophomore finds internship at Eaton PDF Print E-mail

“franco_biondolillo” This coming summer, Franco Biondolillo, a sophomore here at Marietta College, has the opportunity to intern at Eaton in Cleveland, OH.

Eaton is a power management company and they strive to provide safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable solutions for their global customers. They provide products such as electrical circuit breakers, hydraulics, aerospace systems and parts for vehicles.

Biondolillo is an Information Systems major and has been working toward finding an internship the entire fall semester. He first learned about this summer internship through an website called indeed.

Most of the internships in the IS department are more business orientated working around the MIS portion of the major. This internship qualifications are very similar, although technical ability through coursework and work experience is preferred. This internship also requires strong analytical and business process skills in order to have a full grasp to what is going on.

Through this internship, Franco says that he is most excited about the opportunity to develop valuable skills outside of the classroom through teamwork and also directly from his manager who is an Enterprise Engineer. He also goes on to say “I think this internship will help me set a clear path on the field of work I'll want to go into upon graduation. Finally, I will have the opportunity to improve upon my professional skills and career oriented lifestyle from what I currently possess.”

This internship describes that Franco will develop skills through structured training, coaching, and networking events in the areas of business intelligence (data mining), project management processes, business analysis, systems architecture, IT security, enterprise resource planning and management systems, web and mobile applications, telecommunications and data infrastructure processes and many other disciplines which form the backbone for service delivery at a premier industrial diversified manufacturer and more Information Technology.

Through this 12-week paid internship, Franco explained “I will work at Eaton’s U.S. Headquarters in Beachwood, OH near Cleveland beginning on May 12th.”

This internship does not start until this summer, come back for more details in the fall to see how Franco did and what all he gained from this experience!


ALICE Program has successful second Year on Campus PDF Print E-mail

ALICE Ferris wheels in space and robots on fire are not uncommon sites for students participating in the Discovering the Wonder of ALICE Programming: Adventures in Computational Thinking Student Institute.

“You get to make a world how you want it” said Parker Williams, 14.

The MCIS department hosted 24 middle and high-school aged students for the second straight year as part of The ALICE Program, which was grant funded by the National Science Foundation.

The program began June 20 and wraps Friday, June 24.

Bob Van Camp, Program Director and Associate Professor of Computer Science, said the students were given an opportunity to learn more about the programming world in an exciting and unique manner.

“The software makes it easy for the kids to have fun and learn skills such as computational thinking and problem solving,” said Van Camp.

ALICE forces students to use their imagination and create a world they eventually can manipulate.

“At first they let us experiment with the program, but eventually they teach us steps so we can change our worlds to whatever we want,” said Christy Heisler, 14.

The program has been so popular that several students had to be put on a waiting list. It’s the encouragement to be creative and manipulate every small detail that keeps the kids coming back each year.

Andrew McGuffey, 12, agrees.

“I loved learning how to make objects inside the program do what I wanted them to do,” he said. “I want to come back next year and learn even more.”
