Anne Clare Duncan

Industrial Engineering


    My name is Anne Clare Duncan and I am an Industrial and Systems Engineer with a Business Administration minor in the 2025 Cohort of the Heath Integrated Business and Engineering Program. I am a member of the Chancellor’s Honors Program and Cook Grand Challenge Honors Program. I am also an active member of the Society of Women Engineers, in which I am the Public Relations Chair and a mentor to younger members. Through this program, I have had the opportunity to volunteer as a leader for an after-school engineering club at Pond Gap Elementary. Throughout my participation, I gained valuable experience in leadership and communication, as well as adaptability and problem-solving as we taught young students and worked with them to complete experiments. This helped me further improve the leadership and communication skills I developed in high school as a captain of the varsity soccer team and as an officer in service and honor clubs. I am a reliable, organized, and flexible student, as well as a critical thinker and problem-solver.

    In high school, I was torn between a degree in business or engineering. I eventually decided on engineering, and this choice was further confirmed to me when I participated in High School Introduction to Engineering Systems for Twelfth Graders (HITES12), but I still wanted to pursue business in some form. When I learned about the IBEP program, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it, as it would give me the experience I wanted in both fields while helping improve my skills in communication, leadership, and problem-solving. I have always been a highly motivated and driven student, and this program was the natural next step for me, as industrial engineering is often closely aligned with the business aspects of industry.

    After graduating, I would like to gain experience in the engineering world before taking that experience and applying it in a business-centered job. I would like to apply the experience I gain in industry to roles that are less traditional for an IE. I am interested in possibly pursuing a career in management, consulting, or supply chain management, though I am eager to pursue any opportunities that I am presented with.
