Student Organizations

Being in Industrial and Systems Engineering is a demanding major, but it is not all work. Our students are involved in many different activities across campus. Some of these are ISE related, and others are not.

Some of the ISE related activities are:

Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers - IISE is our professional organization, and it gives our students a chance to interact with other students in the department, and other universities. It also gives students a chance to network with companies, and attend informational sessions about issues such as resume writing, finding internships, and interviewing skills. It also helps to bridge the gap between younger students and older students.

Alpha Pi Mu - This is the Industrial and Systems Engineering national honor society. It is open to outstanding juniors, seniors, and graduate students. This society also allows students excellent networking opportunities, as well as a chance to get to know more students within the department.

American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP)ASSP and its members continue to work towards increasing workplace safety and health and raising awareness globally. Throughout history, the safety profession and safety professionals have attempted to improve working conditions. Through these efforts, many lives are saved each day. However, this work is not complete. Until each worker returns home in the same condition he or she came to work in, ASSP and its members still have a formidable task at hand. 

Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) - SME is a nonprofit association of professionals, educators and students committed to promoting and supporting the manufacturing industry. SME helps manufacturers innovate, grow and prosper by promoting manufacturing technology, developing a skilled workforce and connecting the manufacturing industry. SME supports manufacturing based on our core belief: Manufacturing is key to economic growth and prosperity.

Human Factors and Ergonomics Society The society’s mission is to promote the discovery and exchange of knowledge concerning the characteristics of human beings that are applicable to the design of systems and devices of all kinds. The society furthers serious consideration of knowledge about the assignment of appropriate functions for humans and machines, whether people serve as operators, maintainers, or users in the system. And, it advocates systematic use of such knowledge to achieve compatibility in the design of interactive systems of people, machines and environments to ensure their effectiveness, safety and ease of performance.

Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) - The INFORMS Student Chapter at Auburn University promotes interest in the fields of Operations Research, Management Science, and Advanced Analytics. It fosters a sense of community among students in these disciplines and promotes the exchange of ideas, mentoring for students, and connections between students and professionals in industry and academia.

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE)The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is a not-for-profit membership organization founded to develop and disseminate the transdisciplinary principles and practices that enable the realization of successful systems. INCOSE is designed to connect systems engineering professionals with educational, networking, and career-advancement opportunities in the interest of developing the global community of systems engineers and systems approaches to problems.
