Industrial engineering, operations research, and systems engineering are fields of study intended for individuals who are interested in analyzing and formulating abstract models of complex systems with the intention of improving system performance. Unlike traditional disciplines in engineering and the mathematical sciences, the fields address the role of the human decision-maker as key contributor to the inherent complexity of systems and primary benefactor of the analyses.
Georgia Tech pursues leading-edge research with industry, government, and community partners.
At ISyE, we are a national leader in 10 core research areas: Advanced Manufacturing, Analytics and Big Data, Economic Decision Analysis, Health, Optimization, Statistics, Stochastics and Simulation, Supply Chain Engineering, Sustainable Systems Engineering, and System Informatics and Control.
You can stay in touch with all things ISyE through our news feed, by reading one of our publications, or attending one of our upcoming events. ISyE employs some of the world’s most experienced researchers in their fields who enjoy sharing their perspectives on a wide variety of topics. Our faculty is world-renowned and our students are intellectually curious. Our alumni can be found around the globe in leadership positions within a wide variety of fields.
The mission of the ISyE Ambassadors is to build and maintain a hospitable environment where prospective students, current ISyE students, alumni, and members of ISyE can inspire, educate, and support one another. Specifically, the ISyE Ambassadors accomplish our mission in four unique ways:
Act as official hosts and hostesses to the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering by promoting the ISyE program, educating current and potential Georgia Tech students, and providing tours to prospective students, families, and faculty members
Connect the ISyE community of students, staff, alumni, parents, and faculty by understanding and communicating the needs of the ISyE student body to the department and vice versa
Extend the bandwidth of the ISyE Academic Advising office by highlighting the ISyE department's resources and supporting registration
Develop a cohesive ISyE culture by fostering pride in current students and increasing awareness of ISyE to prospective students
Through these acts of service, the ISyE Ambassadors support ISyE as a welcoming, impactful, and innovative world leader in graduating passionate global citizens within industrial and systems engineering.
