IEM Seminar 2013
The IEM seminar (a/k/a EGR 640) is an introduction to IEM and will set the tone for your first semester in the program. The seminar will be held on campus in the Business-Engineering Complex (BEC) which is located at 1150 Tenth Avenue South.
The IEM Seminar is scheduled for August 15, 16, and 17 from 8-5 each day. We strongly encourage you to participate in this event on the UAB campus. For those of you who are online only, our seminar leadership team is planning to stream the seminar live. You will need to make yourself available during the seminar times to be able to stream, making sure any software downloads are taken care of prior to the event. If you have an emergency or unavoidable conflict that prevents you from attending the seminar, we will make arrangements for you to view the seminar video. We expect all current clients to attend this seminar.
There is one group activity they would like everyone to participate in so Mark Your Calendar for Thursday, August 15 at 10:45 am CST to participate in an Online Networking activity with your colleagues.
For those of you who are planning to come into town, UAB has several hotels in the area that offer discounted rates for UAB visitors and they are listed on this website - https://www.uab.edu/students/undergraduate-admissions/freshman/accepted/item/347(closest to UAB and in no particular order are: Courtyard by Marriott, Doubletree Hotel, Hotel Highland, Residence Inn, and Spring Hills Suites Marriott).

THINGS YOU NEED TO DO BY JULY 31:
Deferred Admission InformationIf you have changed your plans in any way and do not plan to participate in IEM for the Fall, please let us know ASAP. If you let us know before the seminar starts in August, we can probably defer your admission to the next class. If not, you will likely have to go through the entire admission process again.
