Course Overview

Industrial engineers ensure that all components of the manufacturing process, from supply chain to assembly line operations and beyond, are best optimized for maximum productivity, quality, and efficiency. Industrial engineers manage and develop the human, technological, logistical, and materials resources of a production system with an emphasis on efficiency, productivity, and quality. Industrial engineers focus on problem solving, whether it’s preparing for growth, performing cost analyses, establishing workplace safety procedures, supply chain management, or modification to the assembly line. industrial engineers may be employed by either government agencies or private companies.

Career Opportunities

Industrial engineers develop job evaluation programs, amongst other duties. Industrial engineers find ways to eliminate wastefulness in production processes. They devise efficient systems that integrate workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service. Manufacturing firms and service industries hire a significant number of IEs. Today, more and more businesses hire IEs in areas like sales and marketing, finance, information systems, and personnel. Other industries employing IEs are hospitals, airlines, banks, railroads, and social services.
