Dr. Suzanna Long, chair of engineering management and systems engineering, has been selected as a fellow by the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE). The honor is granted to only 0.1% of the organization’s members in any given year.
The fellow award recognizes outstanding leaders of the profession who have made significant, nationally recognized contributions to industrial and systems engineering. A fellow is the highest classification of IISE membership. Long will be recognized at a ceremony in New Orleans this fall.
Long has been chair of engineering management and systems engineering for three years, managing a department budget of more than $4 million. She has been the primary investigator or co-primary investigator in 39 externally funded research projects since 2008, with grants awarded from organizations such as the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Science Foundation. Her research areas include critical and sustainable infrastructure, supply chain management and transportation, organizational behavior, strategic management and systems management. Long’s research has resulted in approximately 150 journal articles, conference papers and book chapters, and has contributed practical applications to transportation and other industries. Her geospatial project through the U.S. Geological Survey was selected for inclusion on GEOPLATFORM, the first time that any project funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior has been selected for this honor.
Long joined Missouri S&T’s faculty in 2008. Since then, she has supervised four post-doctoral scholars, 20 Ph.D. students and 15 master’s degree students. Long was named Missouri S&T’s Woman of the Year in 2016. She is a Missouri S&T alumna, earning two bachelor’s degrees, a master’s degree and her Ph.D. at S&T. Long also holds a master’s degree from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
