What is Industrial Engineering at WVU like?
Industrial and management systems engineers focus on improving performance for an entire system — productivity, quality, cost, safety, sustainability, employee health and market enhancement. They can be found in manufacturing, healthcare, logistics and distribution, retail environments, government agencies, financial institutions and virtually any product or service that has complex processes.
Industrial engineers balance inputs to achieve the greatest good for the organization and society — the right combination of human resources, natural resources and man-made structures and equipment. Professionals in this field bridge the gap between management and operations, motivating people in addition to determining what equipment, information, etc., should be used and how.
