Summary of training

What is industrial engineering

Industrial engineering focuses on improving processes. Industrial engineers analyze and optimize systems such as waiting in line at a theme park, boarding an airplane, helping people at a bank, answering calls at a call center, as well as manufacturing processes such as making airplane parts, car parts, household appliances, food, soda, bottled water, and so on. Industrial engineers will have to take a wide range of support classes such as calculus, physics, chemistry, circuits, and materials engineering. Although the most important support class that an industrial engineer will take is statistics. Statistics is crucial because in the real world processes, such as time it takes to help a customer in line, often can follow some kind of distribution, (which can’t be represented by an equation as easily). Overall industrial engineering is great if you enjoy statistics, working with people, and optimizing profits and time for companies.



Industrial Engineering – A Way of Life

Industrial Engineering is a dynamic field with infinite possibilities



Industrial Engineering, an Introduction

Industrial Engineering is an amazing profession with tons of opportunity for its graduates!



Industrial Engineering – An overview

What is Industrial Engineering anyway? It sounds so generic and yet somehow very technical. Watch this video and I will give you a basic overview including: what Industrial Engineering is, what tools Industrial Engineers use, the history of the field, the future and whether or not you may like it.

Central Applications Office Website (C.A.O)

Industrial Engineers design systems to enable people and society to improve productivity, efficiency and effectiveness and the quality of the work environment. The systems that are the subject of Industrial Engineering design are broad and are characterized by a need to integrate both the physical and decision making capabilities of humans, together with all other aspects of the system design.
