Industrial and Systems Engineering

Industrial engineers design and improve systems that use people, machines, information, materials, and energy to make and deliver products or provide services. They improve system performance by solving problems whose outcomes are influenced by complicated and uncertain interactions. If you are thinking about a career as an industrial engineer, the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) is a natural place to begin your career path. As the top-ranked program of its kind, it will give you access to world-class faculty and excellent options for research and education. Georgia Tech's program features a track option that allow students to either obtain a broad industrial engineering education or specialize in economic and financial systems; operations research; quality and statistics; or supply chain engineering.
