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.
Consider participating in a co-op or internship or joining one of our professional or student organizations to enhance your classroom activities. There are a number of organizations open to graduate students, and they are a great way to grow your network, develop your leadership skills, and expand your knowledge of your field. Many of our Ph.D. students participate in summer internships with companies they are interested in checking out or on a project that relates to their research while our Master's students often choose to participate in the co-op experience.
Graduate Co-ops and Internships
Georgia Tech’s Graduate Co-op/Internship program provides graduate students with the opportunity to work with industry and government leaders in their respective areas of study. Eligibility for the program is based on academic achievement at Georgia Tech. Research for doctoral theses may be related to the work assignments, and is jointly supervised by Georgia Tech faculty and company staff.
Graduate Student Government Association. Advocates on behalf of graduate students when it comes to issues including health care and student fees, and plans events such as the Career, Research, and Innovation Development Conference.
Student Alumni Association. Offers opportunities to connect with alumni, hear from leaders of your chosen industry, and learn about Georgia Tech’s history and traditions.
Graduate Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Provides programs, services, and support to female graduate students of Georgia Tech in STEM fields, focusing on professional development, mentoring, and networking.
