The Wm Michael Barnes ’64 Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering has overcome many recent challenges in stride as a named department.
We are eager to welcome our students back for the fall 2021 semester and are looking forward to all of the amazing feats they will accomplish. Our students are resilient and prepared to go out into the world and lead in both industry and academia.
This year we are thankful for the generosity of each and every one of our donors. They give many of our students the opportunity to learn and prosper in industrial and systems engineering, and faculty the opportunity to honor these generous gifts.
We will be honoring Mike and Sugar Barnes at our department naming dedication on October 1. The Barnes’ have given over $10 million to Texas A&M University, including a major endowment in honor of the department’s 80th anniversary. The department has been renamed in their honor.
We are proud to promote a culture of openness and collaboration that welcomes everyone to Texas A&M, both remotely and in person. For further information about our department, our degree programs, recent news items and more, we invite you to explore our website.
