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.

Xinyu Liu is a Ph.D. student in Operations Research at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech since 2018. Xinyu is a recipient of the M.H. Stewart Fellowship and the McLean Fellowship. She received her bachelor’s degree in Operations Research and Business Analytics at Singapore University of Technology and Design in 2018, Summa Cum Laude.
Xinyu uses optimization, stochastic modeling, and data-driven methods to solve problems arising from transportation and travel behavior modeling. She is currently working on the modeling and design of pickup and drop-off facilities. Her research was supported by Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Graduate Research Award from 2019 to 2020. Her broader research interests include infrastructure and marketplace modeling for on-demand transportation and self-driving vehicles.
Xinyu is a passionate teacher and educator. As a proud H. Milton Stewart Ph.D. Student Teaching Fellow, she served as the instructor-of-record for an undergraduate stochastic modeling course in the summer of 2022. Xinyu was also honored to be recognized by the ISyE Outstanding GTA Award for 2021.
