Areas of Focus
SCL recently opened an office on the Georgia Tech-Savannah campus to support workforce development courses, online training, supply chain short courses and executive seminars. Additionally, the office serves as a mechanism for dialoguing with local businesses regarding challenges that can be addressed as student group projects or research engagements.
In the coming months, the SCL Savannah campus will be offering programming related to sourcing and procurement, international logistics and compliance, and lean logistics, among others.

Collaborative partnerships have long been an important component of ISyE and SCL's philosophy. While we cover a wide spectrum of projects and research, there are two main approaches to working with us. You can work with our world-renowned faculty on a research project that focuses on a critical need or area of concern to help advance your organization’s goals, or you can work with a group of bright, intellectually curious undergraduate or master’s students and a faculty advisor within a capstone design class on a relevant company-specified problem.
If you have questions relating to the below, please use our contact form to ask us about supply chain and logistics related research projects.
Faculty regularly work with corporations and other organizations to perform in-context research that provides new knowledge, tools, and insights related to the immediate interest of our business partners. These projects are organized with individual faculty or small groups of faculty and may be structured as sponsored research, direct, consulting, or philanthropy depending on the type of desired partnerships. ISyE faculty members often have students participate in these research endeavors and this option type of project is preferred when results are needed very quickly or when the research questions are long-term and require deeper technical expertise. SCL supports faculty-led research through its Corporate Partnership Program. Contact us via our online form with questions.
ISyE has three academic capstone design classes – Undergraduate Senior Design, MS in SCE Capstone, and MS in Analytics Capstone – in which students spend an intensive semester working on an engineering design project for a client company or other organization. These projects are designed to challenge and enhance the students’ problem-solving skills while training them to utilize all available resources to develop a solution for the project client. These programs offer a unique opportunity for your organization to partner and interact with these students, a win-win collaboration for both the students and your organization. Interpretation of specific aspects of the design problem and potential solutions will depend on each team's diverse range of skills, experiences, and imagination.
Interested in having a team of talented undergraduate or master’s students tackle one of your pressing problems for their senior design or capstone industry projects? Contact us via our online form with questions.
Partnerships with business and industry play a definitive role in guiding SCL's activities and direction. The result has proven to be mutually beneficial, with participating businesses enjoy incomparable opportunities for the professional development of top executives in critical areas, improvement to their operations through exposure to new ideas, and participation in problem-solving research projects they could not undertake on their own. From the university standpoint, the relationships keep educators and students apprised of the ever-changing business landscape, ensuring that their efforts remain in step with business world realities.
SCL reaches out to students, educators, businesses and the logistics community in an effort to increase exposure and accessibility to supply chain & logistics expertise through a variety of educational programs, partnership opportunities and outreach activities.
