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 three of the most important locations for logistics and manufacturing in the 21st century: China,Singapore and Vietnam.
Coursework will be offered for the first 6 weeks in Singapore at the National University of Singapore (NUS), followed by 1 week at the International School at Vietnam National University, with the remaining 5 weeks at Shanghai Jiaotong University. The coursework is supplemented with visits to manufacturing/logistics hubs such as IBM, Coca-Cola, Hyundai and Heineken. 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 (12 credits), which are taught consecutively, each starting and ending within an intensive 3-week period.
