While other types of engineers design things, industrial engineers (IEs) design the systems that enable those things to work effectively. IEs design, install, improve, and control large, complex systems that include the integration of people, materials, machines, and facilities with wide-ranging applications including:

  • manufacturing
  • healthcare
  • service
  • transportation
  • energy
  • finance
  • entertainment
