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.

Lauren E. Silver is an Academic Advisor II at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. She collaborates with undergraduate students in long- and short-term academic planning, including 1) course scheduling and registration; 2) exploring study abroad, co-op, and internship opportunities; and 3) assisting students with academic petitions and navigating their way toward graduation.
Prior to Georgia Tech, Lauren advised undergraduate students pursuing degrees through Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies and School of Public Health. She was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels while in graduate school. It was during that time that she developed her interest in working with university-level students. She moved to Atlanta to pursue her M.P.H. after conducting health policy and public health research for two social science research firms in the Washington, D.C. area.
Lauren received her B.A. in public policy from Vanderbilt University in 2004 and her M.P.H. from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in 2013.
