Industrial and systems engineers, like other engineers, are problem solvers. They design, streamline and improve complex processes and systems for maximum efficiency, whether the goal is to save time, save money, improve quality — or all three. Industrial and systems engineers are in high demand in nearly every sector of the economy, from manufacturing and service industries to energy.
