As a student you should be getting involved and use available resources to better yourself academically, socially and professionally. Undergraduate Research Minors

1-1 Tutoring (Must make appointment) ISYE, math, engineering electives, physics, psychology, Spanish PLUS Sessions CALC, differential equations, ISYE 2027, physics Learning assistance program (LAP) in residence halls OMED educational services Communication Center: Clough 447 Written projects Lab reports Individual and group presentations Resumes and cover letters Appointments and walk-ins accepted ISYE communication specialists are a resource for students who are writing their proposals and final reports for senior design. There are also several other tutoring services offered on campus such as Georgia Tech OMED and the Learning Assistance Program. You can find more information about these resources here: Please note that these services are free, however, missing an appointment may lead to a charge on your account. Many students do not look for academic help because they feel that they should be able to handle courses on their own. We urge you to not follow this mindset and use any and all academic resources available to you.

11 Clubs/Leadership IIE: Institute Of Industrial Engineers; Student Chapter GT Alpha Pi Mu: ISyE Honor Society (invitation only) Hundreds Of Organizations on campus: Campus Recreation Sports Clubs: Club or organizations are available for nearly every interest you may have. We encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, meet people with similar interests as well as different backgrounds than yourself. Take all experiences as an opportunity to network with fellow classmates. Join three clubs your freshman year: Something that interests you Something that you don’t know anything about Something to develop your academic or professional skillset

12 Minors Many ISyE students choose to minor in another discipline
Typically credit hours You cannot count a course as both a minor requirement and a major requirement (only exception is free elective hours) Popular minors: Computer science Engineering and Business Economics Foreign language Popular Certificate: Finance Generally it will take you longer to graduate if you choose to minor. You are required to take 11 free elective credits and you can use minor courses to fulfill this requirement.
