We’ve become accustomed to the ease of modern living, where everything can be easily found on a store shelf. However, there are many difficult and complex processes involved in providing everyone with affordable and readily available consumer goods. The name for the system planning that goes into these processes is Industrial Engineering. It involves the procurement of the materials needed for production, the inexpensive production of quality products, and the transportation of those products to consumers. It is everything in between the production of a product and its arrival to its consumers.
What Can Industrial Engineering Majors Do After Graduation?
- You can contribute to systems for production, management, education, and health and service establishments.
- You can analyze components and processes of systems, and work in inspecting their stability, efficiency, and productivity.
- You can design quality systems that effectively work with limited resources, in a way that is considerate of human and environmental concerns.
- You can build systems to help information technology managers and policy makers with their work.
