Industrial Engineers design, build, operate, and improve production systems by producing goods and/or services for customers around the world.
A production system is an endeavor involving people, processes, and products. Production systems serve to provide the world with products – goods and services – in all sectors of the economy. People like you and I serve to provide creativity and leadership in production systems, while also serving as the customers for the goods and services produced.
An education in the industrial engineering discipline opens the door for men and women, like you, to enter this fascinating and challenging world of producing worthwhile things (goods and services) at competitive prices for domestic and international markets. The IE discipline, more than any other, prepares you for professional practice in defining, designing, implementing, operating, and improving processes. All products, without exception, come from processes.
