    ISE Logo
    Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

    The Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering is a top-ranked program, offering a B.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering (BSISE). Career opportunities for ISEs have never been better, and our graduates work for manufacturing facilities, distribution warehouses, hospitals, airlines, railroads, banks, amusement parks, management consulting, military, and federal government organizations. One of the primary aims of the ISE is to create value for organizations by improving performance of integrated systems, for example, improving quality, productivity, costs, efficiency, worker safety, and/or customer satisfaction. The depth and breadth of the BSISE curriculum at Virginia Tech prepares our graduates to contribute to any organization in any industry. Presented by Maggie Johnson, Dr. Eileen Van Aken, and Paula Van Curen

    Materials Science and Engineering Lab Tour with Demonstrations

    Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) is an interdisciplinary field of materials science based around the design and discovery of new materials. MSE is involved in the research, design, and development of materials to advance technology and products. One of the most hands on engineering disciplines, MSE students are in the lab every semester. During this tour, the MSE Student Ambassadors will provide a view of the labs, demonstrations, and experiments. After the tour, the MSE Student Ambassadors will be on hand to answer your questions.

    DREAMS (Design, Research, and Education for Additive Manufacturing Systems) Lab

    The DREAMS lab is a research lab focused on additive manufacturing (e.g., 3D printing) technologies. The lab consists of an interdisciplinary set of undergraduate and graduate researchers from a variety of majors and backgrounds, including mechanical engineering, materials science, and chemistry. We often work on multi-disciplinary projects involving new materials, designing for additive manufacturing, and developing new additive manufacturing processes. Some of our recent projects have integrated additive manufacturing with cybersecurity, pharmaceuticals, industrial robotics, and biomedical applications. From programming to printing to materials testing, there's always something interesting going on in the DREAMS lab!
