ISyE Receives Thumbs Up From APR Committee

Primary tabs

The H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) has successfully completed an Academic Program Review (APR). Every five years, ISyE participates in an APR which affords the opportunity to assess the quality of the academic degree programs while determining ways to improve the quality of education, research and service.

"ISyE has a rich tradition of ongoing institutional improvement,* said Chelsea C. White III, Chair of ISyE. "Participating in an academic review process is just one of several strategies we use as a vehicle for continuing to improve what we do.*

The committee's report, received on March 18, 2007, reconfirmed that ISyE continues to be the preeminent industrial engineering program in the U. S. and the world. This is also validated by the recent rankings by the U. S. News and World Report. The committee's report also stated that ISyE is using its funds effectively to educate and train students at all levels, to develop strong research programs, and to foster active relationships with industry and government agencies worldwide.

"The committee's findings are a reflection on the quality of our students, faculty, and staff and helps the Stewart School of ISyE to maintain its reputation as producing top-notch graduates, offering an extremely innovative curriculum, and generating exceptional research,* said White.

The program review committee was comprised of faculty from peer programs and institutions around the country. The Program Review Committee included:

(Chair) Dr. Louis Martin-Vega, Dean of Engineering, North Carolina State University;

Dr. Susan L. Albin, Professor and Director of the Graduate Program, Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering, Rutgers University;

Francisco Barahona, Research Staff Member, IBM Watson Research Center;

Dr. William Meeker, Professor of Statistics and Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts, Department of Statistics, Iowa State University;

Dr. Yossi Sheffin, Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Engineering Systems, Director, MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
