The Institute of Industrial Engineers describes industrial engineers as those who design, improve, and install systems of people, material, information, equipment and energy. Not surprisingly, there are several specializations within this broad field. However, they are all related by an emphasis on the systems aspects of engineering problems.Taking the systems view of problems means that the industrial engineer often tackles large-scale problems involving the integration of many subsystems. These subsystems might be the focus of other branches of engineering and science. Thus, the nature of industrial engineering graduate study and research is interdisciplinary.
