Introduction of the group

The Industrial Systems Engineering Research (ISER) group supports students in their research work in the field of Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management. The group has active research collaborations with international universities. This culminates in not only journal and conference research publications but also frequent exchange programs in which researchers travel to conduct research at collaborating universities in Europe. In this regard, research group of Production and Logistics Systems (University of Bremen, Germany) held a lecture series on “Complex Logistics Networks” in 2017 at CUST. Recently, in August 2018, ISER group conducted a four-day workshop on “Modelling Techniques for Production and Supply Chain” in which participants came from both academia and industry to gain perspective on contemporary research and modeling issues.
