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.
