Industrial engineers figure out how to do things better. They design processes and systems that improve quality and productivity while reducing waste, saving money, and increasing output. More and more companies want industrial and systems engineers and promote them into management positions.
Systems engineering is a fundamental application of industrial engineering principles. Systems engineers focus on solving problems at a systems level, which includes people, machines, materials, energy, technology, information and software. Systems engineers must design solutions that consider all of a system’s components so that everything works together to improve overall system performance.
Whether it’s distributing products worldwide, manufacturing superior automobiles, or streamlining the procedures in an operating room, you can increase efficiency, save companies money, and improve outcomes for employees and users as an industrial or systems engineer. Your career flexibility and choice of sectors in industrial engineering are the broadest of any engineering profession.
