Industrial engineering alumnus and 4+1 candidate Jaclyn DellaGreca ’17, MBA ’18, is committed to safety, efficiency and increasing item production with good quality. Still, the psychology minor is driven to enact positive change in people’s lives.
It's no surprise that DellaGreca serves as vice president of QU - IISE (Quinnipiac University Institute of Industrial and System Engineers), and also was inducted into Psi Chi, a psychology honor society. However, it was during several internships that she realized she could manage supply chains and assembly lines while also bringing out the best in people.
“I was able to see how my work affected the other employees and how I helped their daily operations,” DellaGreca said.
At Branson Emerson Automation in Danbury, Connecticut, DellaGreca helped mitigate worker risk on the assembly line, while at Crash Safety Reseach Center, in East Hampton, Connecticut, she analyzed data from car accidents to determine how they could have been avoided. Later, at Medtronic, in North Haven, Connecticut, DellaGreca worked with the Operational Excellence Team to increase cost savings and bring products to market more quickly.
