ISyE Offers New Master of Science in Supply Chain Engineering: A Faster and More Focused Path to a Global Supply Chain Career
To meet the growing demand for business-savvy engineers who can design and synchronize highly complex global supply chains, the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) is launching a new, one-year professional graduate degree program, the Master of Science in Supply Chain Engineering.
“We listened carefully to the industry community and to the students at Georgia Tech to design a program that meets the needs of the supply chain professional of the 21st century,” said Harvey Donaldson, associate chair of industry and international programs at ISyE. “With this degree, students now can pursue a highly focused graduate education experience in supply chain engineering and explore immediate career opportunities with global enterprises.”
The program’s intensive 12- month curriculum delivers academic knowledge in analytic methods, supply chain engineering, and enterprise management while building professional practice skills and real-world industry experience, all leading to a respected graduate degree from the #1-ranked Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering.
Students, who may come from a wide range of academic, business, and geographical backgrounds, will move through the program’s courses together as a cohort, creating strong connections and networks.
The program’s innovative curriculum, which is true to ISyE’s traditions and standards and adaptable to international students and global university partners, is designed to be a new model for a highly focused graduate professional education in supply chain engineering. The curriculum:
- Leverages the traditions and rigorous academic standards of Georgia Tech’s Stewart School of ISyE;
- Balances ISyE’s strengths in analytical methods with enhanced resources in supply chain engineering applications, enterprise management, and professional development;
- Offers new courses and instructional approaches that place more emphasis on integrative and experiential learning; and
- Provides smaller class sizes, more non-classroom learning activities, and a capstone industry problem-solving experience.
The curriculum is structured around classroom courses (eight required and two elective) offered during the fall and spring semesters and the capstone industry experience, which is completed during the summer term.
Applications for the August 2011 class are already being accepted. Visit www.sce.gatech.edu for more information on joining this class.
