Just as the success of our industrial and systems engineering graduates enhances the reputation of the department - the reputation of the department enhances the degrees of our graduates.
In 2011, U.S. News & World Report ranked the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University among the best in the nation. In fact, currently both our graduate program and our undergraduate program are ranked 6th.
As part of a state-assisted university, we are very appreciative of the funding provided by the state of Texas. However, as time goes by, that funding becomes a smaller and smaller percentage of the overall budget required to maintain the university (currently about 32%). The university and its departments rely heavily on gifts and endowments to sustain and enhance their programs.
For the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering to sustain and enhance its programs and its ranking, and your degree, we must compete with other universities for the best faculty and the best students. That takes resources.
Here's how you can help
Make a contribution to ensure a strong future for industrial engineering at Texas A&M:
- Scholarships - to recruit the best undergraduates
- Graduate fellowships - to recruit the best graduate students
- Professorships - to attract and retain superior faculty
Quality Students + Quality Faculty = Quality Program
College Impact: ISEN Engineering Excellence Fund
These funds are available for the discretion of the department head to be used for things that enhance the mission of the department, including professional travel for faculty, staff and students; student organization support; and development activities.
Student Impact: Industrial Engineering Endowed Scholarship
The Industrial Engineering Endowed Scholars Program was established by the IE Advisory Council in 1994 to raise scholarship funding. Several scholarships are awarded by the department’s scholarship committee from this fund each year.
Faculty Impact: Education Excellence Professorship in Industrial Engineering
Established by the Industrial Engineering Advisory Council in 2003, this professorship will be awarded to an outstanding faculty member to support teaching, research, service and professional development.
