Research in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Abdullah Gul University focuses on understanding, developing models and solution procedures, and providing decision support for the contemporary challenges in production and service industries as well as large-scale socio-technical systems. The department provides a strong background in modeling and optimization, simulation, and probability/statistics. Upon this background, students have the opportunity to specialize in the following three interdisciplinary focus areas:
Sustainability: Producing goods and services using processes that are non-polluting, conserving of energy and natural resources, economically viable, and safe and healthful for workers, communities, and consumers.
Disaster Management: Analyzing, modeling, and providing scientific decision support in the management of natural and human-induced disasters (e.g., earthquakes, landslides, and terrorism) to contribute towards improving the resilience of governments, organizations, and companies.
Healthcare Systems: Improving efficiency, productivity, and patient access in healthcare systems by developing tools, methodologies, and protocols that allow for the safe, efficient, and cost-effective delivery of healthcare with improved outcomes.
