Moinul Islam is a 2nd year Ph.D. student in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech whose doctoral research interest is in humanitarian logistics. He graduated in 2003 from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. Below, he writes about his research focus in ISyE and the factors that motivate him.
The recently launched Sustainable Atlanta web site (sustainableatlanta.org) utilized the expertise of some Georgia Tech students and faculty to develop policies on environmental sustainability. The site notes:
In an effort to bring home the issues of energy and sustainability, a student team from the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering analyzed electricity practices and identified potential energy savings for the ISyE complex. The team's findings prompted Georgia Tech Facilities, who provided assistance throughout the project, to enact a more sustainable nighttime lighting policy in the ISyE buildings.
