This major field of specialization is designed to develop technicians to support the problem-solving and decision-making functions in management and to prepare for planning and control, work method analysis, work measurements, quality assurance and controls, and systems and procedures analysis. Practical applications of production-oriented operations, research techniques, data processing and computer programming fundamentals are stressed.
The industrial engineering technician often is initially employed in the industrial engineering, quality control, production control or plant layout department. With increased experience the student may advance within the department, directly assisting a professional industrial engineer, or may become a production supervisor. This broad technical background, together with the human relations back ground and a proficiency in engineering methods and mathematics, enables the industrial engineering technician to take advantage of opportunities for advancement in many directions.
