The Society for Engineering and Management Systems (SEMS) is the society within the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) that particularly supports IIE members as they seek to advance the state of engineering management practice and research. Besides advanced engineering skills, SEMS stimulates discussion and knowledge exchange related to management domains that are critical to advance your career, whether as an academic or a practitioner.
