Dr. Scott E. Grasman is Professor and Department Head of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology. He has been at RIT since 2011, having spent the previous 10 years in the Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. He received his B.S.E., M.S.E., and Ph.D. in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the University of Michigan.
Dr. Grasman’s primary research interests relate to the application of quantitative models, focusing on the design and development of supply chain and logistics networks, including workforce planning. Recent studies have focused on alternative fuels programs, public-private-partnerships in transportation, alternative energy infrastructure modeling/simulation, and sustainability in supply chain and facility logistics. His research has also addresses engineering education, e.g., sustainability in engineering curriculum, curriculum development for vehicle electrification, and alternative energy programs
Dr. Grasman has been the principal investigator on numerous funded research projects, and his work has resulted in the authorship or co-authorship of over 100 technical papers, including multiple best conference paper awards, as well as reviewer/editorial roles for various technical journals and books.
