The Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) at Berkeley is the largest industrial engineering student organization on campus. Our mission is to provide Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR) and Operations Research and Management Sciences (ORMS) majors with the opportunity to engage with students, professionals, and alumni. We strive to create an inclusive environment for current and future students, and we focus on supporting one another in terms of academic, social, and career development.
We are Alpha Pi Mu, the Industrial Engineering Honor Society and we serve the Industrial Engineering and Operations Research community at UC Berkeley, College of Engineering. Chapters now exist in almost every major university with an accredited industrial and engineering program. There are currently 68 active chapters of the society and a membership of over 38,000 with approximately 600 new members being initiated each year. While academic interests and abilities are required for membership, the society’s overall goals are much broader.
