What Industrial Engineers Do

Industrial engineers focus on critical decisions that enable organizations to achieve their goals efficiently and effectively by balancing cost, personnel, technology, system constraints, safety, and the environment. Key skills include data science, logistics, optimization, simulation, systems engineering, human factors, reliability, and engineering management. Industrial engineers are everywhere, working in transportation, supply chains, quality assurance, health care, energy, sustainability, and more. U.S. job growth for industrial engineering is forecast to be 14% through 2030.
