Student Spotlight: Billy Coffin
Billy Coffin is a senior in the ISE Department, and is an officer for the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineering in the International Relations group. In this role he communicates with our partner schools to organize events for Virginia Tech ISE students. He also is a part of the Sports Business Club on campus where he learns about the ins and outs of Virginia Tech Sports.
Billy recently returned from a study abroad program in Karlsruhe, Germany. There he studied at the International Exchange at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Part of his abroad experience required him to take PPIC and facilities…but all in German! Was für ein Herausfforderung! (which means “That sounds hard!” in German).
Billy worked previously as an intern with FR Drake in Waynesboro, Virginia where he worked with a manufacturing shop to improve the ERP system for the company. Also contributing to Billy’s collegiate experience is his dedication to intramural sports. He has played intramurals every season of his collegiate career thus far and is excited to continue the streak this year.
Billy’s unique abroad experience, involvement on campus, and dedication to his clubs have made him a great addition to the ISE department.
