System & Design Engineer
The Department of Systems Design Engineering is a unique interdisciplinary department in the Faculty of Engineering that offers an accredited engineering program that gives students a full complement of courses in the engineering sciences as well as an unmatched set of courses to learn about and practice engineering design. We offer an educational program for engineering students wanting to learn how to address and solve problems that transcend traditional boundaries in engineering. Modern engineering projects are comprised of elements from all the traditional engineering disciplines and these elements must be integrated into a functioning whole to meet the overall design objectives.
Researchers in the Center for Energy and Geo Processing, a collaboration between Georgia Tech and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in Saudi Arabia, are also focused on improving the accuracy and reducing the costs associated with drilling. Through the application of advanced digital signal processing to geo signals such as seismic data, the Center is helping to identify and isolate problems in the well and drilling process that that could damage expensive equipment or delay operations.
