Amazon’s Staten Island robotic fulfillment center, opened in September 2018, is an 855,000-square-foot warehouse manned by more than 2,000 full-time employees and hundreds of 350-pound robots. The purpose of our tour was to provide ISE students with a deeper understanding of the industrial and systems engineering discipline, particularly warehouse layout, warehouse operations, and material handling.

Industrial and systems engineering seniors bring all that they’ve learned as undergraduates to the table in a culminating capstone project. The Design of Engineering Systems course begins in the spring semester of junior year where student teams research and select a challenging design problem to pursue. The final projects incorporate building prototypes and developing the technology systems to support the project. Students also present their research to a panel of judges that include industry representatives and faculty.

Each year, at the Annual Conference of the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers, a competition is held for the best technical paper from an Industrial and Systems engineering undergraduate program. The technical paper is typically a report of the accomplishments of the students senior design project, presented by a member of the student team who worked on the project. To be eligible to compete the team must first win the regional competition held at the Regional Annual IISE meeting.
