Corporations. Government. Associations. Other Schools and Universities. Our department collaborates with dozens of organizations to advance the field of industrial and systems engineering with funded research. Some of the organizations are as close as NC State’s Centennial Campus – our research and advanced technology community where university, industry and government partners interact. Some are down the block, across town, and in other parts of the state, country or world.
