Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE)

Body

From http://www.isye.gatech.edu:

Established originally as a Program at Georgia Tech in 1924, becoming a School in 1945, the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) is the largest academic program of its kind in the United States. With nearly 60 tenure-track faculty, ISyE is able to support not only a broad spectrum of academic concentrations but, importantly, several that have achieved world-class rank. Though the Stewart School functions administratively as a single cohesive unit, some of our sub-disciplines or academic specialties are so large and concentrated, they could be legitimately viewed as academic departments in their own right.

The School is named in honor of H. Milton Stewart.

Georgia Institute of Technology

From Wikipedia: Georgia Institute of Technology:

The Georgia Institute of Technology (commonly called Georgia Tech, Tech, and GT) is a public, coeducational research university in Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States. It is a part of the University System of Georgia and has satellite campuses in Savannah, Georgia; Metz, France; Athlone, Ireland; Shanghai, China; and Singapore.

The educational institution was founded in 1885 as the Georgia School of Technology as part of Reconstruction plans to build an industrial economy in the post-Civil War Southern United States. Initially, it only offered a degree in mechanical engineering. By 1901, its curriculum had expanded to include electrical, civil, and chemical engineering. In 1948, the school changed its name to reflect its evolution from a trade school to a larger and more capable technical institute and research university. Today, Georgia Tech is organized into six colleges and contains about 31 departments/units, with a strong emphasis on science and technology. It is recognized for its programs in engineering, computing, and the sciences, and offers degrees in architecture, liberal arts, and management.
