NUS Officials Tour ISyE
On March 1-2, 2007, Chip White, chair of the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE), and Harvey Donaldson, director of ISyE's Supply Chain and Logistic Institute, welcomed Professor Tan Chorh Chuan, deputy president and provost, National University of Singapore (NUS) and Professor Lai Choy, vice provost, NUS, to the School.
During their visit to Georgia Tech, they met with President Wayne Clough, Provost Gary Schuster, College of Engineering Dean Don Giddens, Vice Provost Wayne Hodges, ECE Professor Chin-Hui Lee, and Director of the Office of Organizational Development Hal Irvin to learn more about the Institute. They also received a briefing on the many relationships ISyE has with multi-national companies in Singapore; the Logistics Institute * Asia Pacific's outstanding educational program and industry research programs; and the Asia Study Abroad Program for Georgia Tech undergraduate students studying in Beijing and Singapore.
After lunch, students studying in the NUS/Georgia Tech dual master's program (DMP) discussed the value of the program. This prestigious program is the first of its kind to be offered in Singapore and the region. It distinguishes itself from the others by being the first program in Singapore where successful graduates are conferred two Master of Science degrees, a Master of Science in Logistics & Supply Chain Management from NUS and a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from Georgia Tech.
Professor Tan noted that he enjoyed hearing from and meeting the students and this visit reaffirmed his belief that this is a valuable and important educational program.
