Dr. Nazzal enjoys teaching courses in manufacturing, warehousing, and facility logistics system design and operations, as well as advising senior design teams.
- Semesters taught: Fall 2021 and Fall 2022
ISYE 3106 Cornerstone Design
An early design course that introduces students to design problems in Industrial and Systems Engineering through project-based learning utilizing past Senior Design projects. See here for more details.
- Semesters taught: FA18, SP19, FA19, SP20, FA20
In Senior Design, students complete an intensive, semester-long, team-based engineering design project. By the end of the semester, students learn how to properly define and scope a problem; identify and analyze relevant factors; apply appropriate industrial engineering methodologies and computational tools; generate and evaluate alternative solutions.

ISYE 3104: Supply Chain Models in Manufacturing and Warehousing: The primary objective of this course is for students to gain a quantitative and intuitive understanding of – and a set of modeling and analysis skills for – managing and designing the kinds of material flow systems exemplified by warehouses, factories and service systems like hospitals. Particular emphasis is given to the following topics: modeling material flows, particularly the causes and effects of variability; key performance indicators for material flow systems; managing material flow systems to achieve desired performance levels; and designing material flow systems.
- Semesters taught: SP14, FA14, FA15, FA16
ISYE 6380: Production Planning and Control: This is a core course in the online Professional Master in Manufacturing Leadership (PMML) launched in 2015 at Georgia Tech. The primary objective of this course is to gain a quantitative and intuitive understanding of a set of modeling and analysis skills for managing and designing production systems. Particular emphasis will be given to the following topics: aggregate production planning, materials requirement planning, deterministic and stochastic inventory control policies, basic factory dynamics, influence of variability on performance; push vs. pull production control; and operations scheduling.
- Semesters taught: FA15, FA16, FA17, SP19, SP20, SP21, SP22
