Become a next generation engineer with the skills to decode and apply insight into the analytics used by today’s top companies. The business world has learned that using “big data” offers a significant competitive advantage. So engineers with these skills are in greater demand than ever before.

Our students discover the principles of:

  • model formulation
  • system dynamics
  • solution methodologies
  • fact analysis
  • and optimal decision making

Are you an industry leader, government agency or university and want to partner with ISE on a research project? Contact Paul Cohen | pcohen@ncsu.edu | 919.513.2857

Advanced analytics focuses on systems that need human decision-making through mathematical and computer models. Our students and faculty are pushing the boundaries of:

  • linear and nonlinear programming
  • discrete optimization
  • data analysis
  • knowledge extraction
  • intelligent systems
  • fuzzy decision-making
  • and soft computing

We also solve tomorrow’s problems today using applied probability, stochastic modeling, queuing theory and fluid approximations.
