What do you learn in industrial engineering? 1. Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with manufacturing facilities and systems. It designs and manages plant setup and operation, production planning and tooling, quality control, ergonomics of manufacturing and related areas. The management techniques can also be applied to service industries and institutions like hospitals. Wikipedia lists these topics in this link: Industrial engineering - Wikipedia Process engineering: design, operation, control, and optimization of chemical, physical, and biological processes. Systems engineering: an interdisciplinary field of engineering that focuses on how to design and manage complex engineering systems over their life cycles. Safety engineering: an engineering discipline which assures that engineered systems provide acceptable levels of safety. Data science: the science of exploring, manipulating, analyzing, and visualizing data to derive useful insights and conclusions Machine learning: the automation of learning from data using models and algorithms Analytics and data mining: the discovery, interpretation, and extraction of patterns and insights from large quantities of data Cost engineering: practice devoted to the management of project cost, involving such activities as cost- and control- estimating, which is cost control and cost forecasting, investment appraisal, and risk analysis. Value engineering: a systematic method to improve the "value" of goods or products and services by using an examination of function. Quality engineering: a way of preventing mistakes or defects in manufactured products and avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers. Project management: is the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals in scientific or daily problems. Management engineering: a specialized form of management that is concerned with the application of engineering principles to business practice Supply chain management: the management of the flow of goods. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
