Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems EngineeringAbout the Department:
The Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at NC State strives to improve society through research and education related to health and human systems, data analytics and optimization, supply chain and logistics engineering, and advanced manufacturing. The ISE community includes more than 25 faculty, 10 core staff, 300 undergraduate students, 200 graduate students, and others affiliated with connected centers, where we work together in a collaborative, diverse, and collegial environment. ISE is based in Raleigh, NC, which was recently named #2 Best Places to Live by US News and World Report, with proximity to urban areas, beaches, mountains, great restaurants, cultural activities, and more. Essential Job Duties:
In ISE, innovative research is conducted within and across areas including Advanced and Biomedical Manufacturing; Health Systems; Human Systems; Supply Chain and Logistics; and Systems Analytics and Optimization along with interdisciplinary collaborations across the university and beyond. In addition to degrees in ISE, the department leads a Master’s in Engineering Management degree, collaborates on graduate degrees in Operations Research (www.or.ncsu.edu), and supports the Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering (www.imsei.ncsu.edu) Master’s degree.
The department houses two state funded centers, including the Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics (camal.ncsu.edu), which is one of the most advanced manufacturing and 3D printing laboratories in the country, and The Ergonomics Center of North Carolina (www.theergonomicscenter.com), which is the only center of its kind at a U.S. public research institution. The department is supported by world-class laboratory facilities for computing, manufacturing, and human-systems research, enhanced by a recent move to the new Fitts-Woolard Hall, located on NC State’s Centennial Campus near the award-winning Hunt Library and numerous industry and governmental facilities.
Our faculty are internationally renowned in their fields, and they have extensive collaborations with other departments, universities, medical schools, and other external partners. NC State students ‘think and do’ with active learning on real-life problems across the entire ISE discipline, and our students become leaders in academia, industry, and government.
Our location in Raleigh, NC, represents the eastern point of the Research Triangle and places us close to three major universities, a large number of world-class companies, and several leading research institutes.
