In Memory of Andy Sage
Few people have had such extraordinary impact as Andy Sage has had,
as a pioneer and leader in systems
engineering, as founding dean of
the School of Engineering at George
Mason University, as a prolific
author, and as an educator.
As founding dean, Andy had the
vision to focus on IT when it was virtually in its infancy. He hired an impressive array of scholars to lead the
integration of IT and engineering. And
he had the foresight to create the first
interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in IT in
the country. To paraphrase the country
song, Andy was IT when IT wasn't cool.
Equally amazing, Andy had the vision to establish undergraduate and
graduate programs in systems engineering when few others believed systems engineering was a discipline. At
the time, the program at Mason was
one of only a handful in existence, at

the forefront of systems engineering
education. It took many years until others recognized the importance of the
field. Andy was systems engineering
when systems engineering wasn't cool.
Andy wrote, cowrote, and edited
a staggering number of books-well
over 20. His books spanned a wide
range of topics, including communications and control, stochastic processes, decision support systems, economic systems, and, of course, systems
engineering.
Andy's pioneering work in systems
engineering also led him to establish
the earliest journals focusing on systems engineering. He was the founding editor of the INCOSE journal Systems Engineering and served for 27
years as editor of IEEE Transactions
on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics.
Along this journey, Andy garnered
numerous honors: election into the
National Academy of Engineering,
the Samuel Ramo Award, the INCOSE
Pioneer award, as well as several society fellowships. The annual Andrew P.
Sage Best Transactions Paper award
is the highest honor bestowed by
IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man,
and Cybernetics.
Each of these achievements alone is
more than most academics would hope
