Areas of Focus
The Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute has a proactive role in the graduate degree programs that are offered through the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering. SCL recruits both students and industry partners, infusing the programs with real-world projects and enriching the learning experience for students.
For individuals who prefer following a more traditional route, the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers a full-time master's degree program in industrial engineering with tracks in manufacturing, logistics, and supply chain engineering. The MS SCE program is an intensive 12-month curriculum that delivers academic knowledge in analytical 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 and Systems Engineering (ISyE).
The summer (May-July) term* of the M.S. in Supply Chain Engineering program is dedicated to the Capstone Project in which students identify and define a supply chain design and/or analysis problem to be addressed with quantitative modeling. Projects are conducted with sponsors from business, government, or non-government organizations. Students apply their knowledge and skills to the project, and deliver valuable solutions to their sponsoring organizations.
Students are always on the hunt for Capstone projects and internships (to count as capstone). Generally, capstone activities will launch in mid-May with initial planning activities taking place prior to launch. Between January and April, MS SCE students are tasked with securing project work and we welcome companies to submit potential projects year-round.
*Most students complete their Capstone Project during the summer term while enrolled half time. Others choose to delay the Capstone until the following fall term, and use the summer to instead conduct a full-time internship or to travel.
