(June 1, 2017) ISE alumnus and Advisory Board member David Long was featured in the Alumni Profiles section of the Spring 2017 edition of the Virginia Tech Magazine. David earned his M.S. degree in Systems Engineering from the ISE Department in 1992, after graduating from Engineering Science and Mechanics in 1991. The article "Systems for success," describes how, after beginning to pursue his Ph.D. in ISE, he ended up instead starting a company, Vitech, with a systems engineering process software that he developed. The program, known as CORE, is now a leading systems software environment used around the world, and the company celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. The segment about David Long can be found on Page 42 of the hard copy of the magazine, and in the online version as the second story from the top. David has been a member of the ISE Advisory Board since 2015.
