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 fields of specialization: Advanced Manufacturing, Analytics and Machine Learning, Applied Probability and Simulation, Data Science and Statistics, Economic Decision Analysis, Energy and Sustainable Systems, Health and Humanitarian Systems, Optimization, Supply Chain Engineering, and Systems Informatics and Control.
ISyE's faculty and staff members strive to provide a world-class educational experience for the Stewart School's undergraduate and graduate students, and to forge long-lasting relationships with ISyE alumni and industry partners.

Atlanta Humane Society
The Atlanta Humane Society is a no-kill shelter providing sheltering and adoption, veterinary care, and community outreach/resource distribution to the Atlanta Metro. As one of the oldest charities in Atlanta, Georgia, we have been caring for our community and animals for more than 148 years. We believe the relationship between humans and animals has deep significance, and we call on our city and each other to take action. Together, we put up a united front against cruelty, neglect, and displacement. With a heart to better lives, we connect homeless animals with good homes, provide neglected animals with safe spaces, and uplift our community by instilling compassion.
A large part of what we do involves food and supply distribution programs - we would appreciate the opportunity to have a senior design team analyze our current distribution models to determine efficiency and identify opportunities for enhanced technology integration. This includes providing food/supplies to Animal Welfare Organizations statewide, individual pet owners in Metro Atlanta and providing support to human service organizations with established distribution models.
Based on the description above...latest/well rounded knowledge of technological opportunities, any warehouse/inventory management would be helpful but not necessary, knowledge of distribution channel opportunities, understanding of human service organizations active w/in Metro Atlanta as well as statewide (again, nice to have but not necessary).
