Sneak peek: ISyE’s new home
As of November 2022, the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering has a new home. The new space in Lind Hall is complete and brings together ISyE faculty, staff, and students under one roof.
The new space was designed to encourage collaboration and foster community. “This is a major milestone for us,” says Saif Benjaafar. “It puts an exclamation point on the growth and transformation the department has seen in recent years.”
From the beginning, allowing for spontaneous interactions was central to the Lind Hall redesign, according to ISyE Department Administrator Hongna Bystrom. “The feedback that we hear all the time is that our faculty members are very accessible to students,” she says. “With the new space we believe we will do even better.”
