Typical IE Projects

Industrial engineers figure out how to do things better. They engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity. IEs make significant contributions to their employers by saving money while making the workplace better for fellow workers.

In addition to manufacturing, industrial engineers apply their skills in a variety of settings. Here are a few examples:
