About the Academic Program

The ISYE Summer Program in Asia is sponsored by the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISYE) and the Office of International Education (OIE). This 12-week summer program offers Georgia Tech ISYE students the opportunity to take standard undergraduate industrial engineering courses while exploring some of the most important locations for logistics and manufacturing in the 21st century.

Coursework will be offered for five weeks in Singapore at the National University of Singapore (NUS), five days in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and six weeks in Shanghai, China. The coursework is supplemented with visits to manufacturing/logistics hubs. In addition to taking three ISYE courses, students will study Asian history and have the chance to visit some of the important cultural and historical sites discussed in class. While it is a rigorous academic program, courses are taught four days per week to allow students ample time to journey to surrounding cities/countries during the three-day weekends.

All students enroll in four courses (3 credits each), which are taught consecutively, each course is taken for 10 days.
