Virginia Tech's Industrial Systems Engineering (ISE) graduate programs and research activities are diverse, challenging and highly productive. The department provides superior educational opportunities to qualified students and continually improves upon its already strong research and outreach programs. Evidence that the department is attaining its goals is illustrated by the ISE charts of graduate degrees granted, graduate students enrollment, research expenditures, and the national ranking among the accredited industrial engineering programs.

The ISE Department combines a "hands-on" educational philosophy in conjunction with a systems approach to instruction, scholarship, research, and extension. Programs of study are offered to both on-campus students in Blacksburg and off-campus students in Northern Virginia and throughout the commonwealth.

The ISE faculty teaches most of their courses from the Northern Virginia Center in Falls Church, Virginia which has served the greater Washington D.C. metro area with world-class graduate programs and other university services for more than 25 years.
