Industrial engineering draws upon the principles and methods of engineering analysis and synthesis, as well as mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems. In lean manufacturing systems, industrial engineers work to eliminate wastes of time, money, material, energy, and other resources. Stacey nasal production and industrial Engineers aim at high productivity by adopting integrated design and efficient planning and operative systems.
They can also join private consultancy firms, R&D establishments of big companies or as purchase engineers and technical sales managers. Because of the broad-based nature of the course, production and industrial engineers can work with all types of engineering and manufacturing industries in the private and public sectors. Industrial engineers work in a variety of research labs in industries including manufacturing, communications, transportation, banking, pharmaceuticals, finance, travel, e-business, sports, health and IT.
