Industrial engineers work to find the most efficient processes for production and services. They analyze how humans, natural resources, machines, equipment, information and energy interact with each other in daily operations. Industrial engineers use both observation and data to optimize productivity and quality and need a wide range of knowledge and skills to be able to work with both people and systems.
These skills can be seen in the experience of our recent graduates, who have found an array of opportunities in the marketplace. Though industrial engineers have historically been employed in manufacturing, recent graduates have seen an increased demand in the service sector as well.
