|Description:||The role of an industrial engineering technologist is to determine the most effective way to produce a product or provide a service, and ultimately, help organizations exercise better control of production, service, quality, costs, and deployment of resources. To do this, industrial engineering technologists need to understand and examine factors such as production, people, machines, materials, information, and energy requirements. Using mathematical methods, such as operations research and work measurement to solve organizational, production, and related problems, they design and deploy lean production principles to achieve business goals.
Industrial engineering technology skills can be used in almost any type of organization, and graduates work in a wide range of industries - aerospace, oil and gas, energy, government, transportation, consulting services, healthcare, and communications. Industrial engineering technologists are well positioned to transition into management positions.
