PROFILED CAREER

Industrial Engineer

Technology: Product and Process Design, Equipment and Machinery, Automated Manufacturing & Assembly

Industrial Engineers figure out how to do things better. They engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity. They work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, energy, and other commodities. This is why many industrial engineers end up being promoted into management positions. Many people are misled by the term industrial engineer. It's not just about manufacturing. It also covers service industries, with many IEs employed in entertainment industries, shipping and logistics businesses, and health care organizations.
