Administrative/Biographical History

The American Institute of Industrial Engineers (AIIE) was founded in 1948 with the mission of advancing the technical and managerial excellence of industrial engineers. In 1981, the word American was dropped from the name to reflect the international origins of its growing membership; and in 2016 its members voted to change the name of the organization to the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE). IISE is headquartered in Peachtree Corners, Georgia. The Institute circulates information about the profession to its members, interested professionals, businesses and industries that employ industrial engineers, and the general public. It also publishes materials such as monthly and yearly journals, and organizes seminars, workshops, and conferences. The Institute also grants more than 25 awards and scholarships to reward members, students, and institutions for significant contributions to the profession.
