Class of 2011
Taylor graduated from Northwestern University in June 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering and management sciences. He received the IEMS Department Award, which recognizes graduating seniors who have excelled in academics, leadership, and made other contributions to the department as nominated by the university’s department's faculty.
With only 400 graduates from Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering, Taylor was the only student who received the Mickelson Prize for Innovation and Creativity, which is awarded for the most innovative and creative-integrative 'Capstone' project completed for an undergraduate degree. This is the first time an industrial engineer student has won this award. Taylor's created software to help the Chicago Marathon organization manage and present the critical, real-time information that the race management and public health and safety teams need. His model has been adopted for ongoing use at the Chicago Marathon and is being adapted to use for other heavily populated events in Chicago, and other cities in the United States. Taylor received an honorary medal from the Chicago Marathon management team for his contributions to the organization.
We are so proud of you Taylor!
