The Summer 2007 issue of Engineering Enterprise, the H. Milton Stewart School of ISyE's alumni magazine, features humanitarian relief logistics research within the School.

Few can forget the images broadcast around the world of damage caused after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and by the tsunami in South Asia. With the increasing occurrence of natural and man-made disasters that leave massive devastation in their wake, quicker response-times and improved coordinated humanitarian relief efforts are needed to get populations in crisis the aid that they need.

A recently established Center for Humanitarian Relief Logistics at the Stewart School of ISyE seeks to develop advanced response methods and technologies that will have a global impact in this critical area.
