In ISyE, we provide students with the tools to solve tomorrow's problems as we continue to improve the lives of people at home and around the globe.
Georgia Tech and the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) have been an important part of my academic life, and it is an honor to be the H. Milton and Carolyn J. Stewart School Chair. ISyE's renowned faculty, students, and alumni align to be a strategic global resource as we continue to strengthen and influence what industrial engineers do today and will do in the future. ISyE is creative, bold, and solution-driven, and we are particularly equipped with holistic systems thinking approaches. There are many global opportunities for industrial and systems engineers, and the grand challenges in the field are strategic imperatives for our efforts and impact. We believe in the power of collaboration, and will continue to join forces with our disciplinary partners as well as business, government, and not-for-profit organizations to improve these complex societal issues.
As one of the best programs in the nation, ISyE provides a rigorous and comprehensive education. In the 2014 U.S. News & World Report rankings, the graduate program in ISyE ranked No. 1 again, making this the twenty-third consecutive number one ranking for ISyE. Our undergraduate program has also ranked No. 1 for the last seventeen years. We believe that our strong reputation is based on several factors, including our world-class faculty, ability to attract some of the best and brightest students, attention to engineering fundamentals, and our superior record of placing graduates.
We will provide our students with the tools to solve tomorrow's problems as we improve the lives of people at home and around the globe. As we work on some of the world's grand challenges, we will also help to develop the next generations of enlightened leaders who can tackle the problems we cannot even conceive of right now.
