Engineer field 2.0 Production engineer
The last thread of engineer was focused on Mechanical/Electrical engineer. But what about Industrial engineer? I am studying production engineer (Industrial with more mechanical focus) in a well known scientific college from south america (universidad simon bolivar). We use the MIT engineering programs with a trimestral system, it's really hard but it seems to prepare you well for the job field. I am going to focus on statistics and operations research, so i will be a demon with maths. My degree focus on how to optimize production, industrial management and entrepreneur basics. Although I will work for 5 years on a corporation to get experience and learn how a big company works, I want to get my own business. Is industrial engineer over rated? or a good degree for an independent job (boss of myself and manage a small/medium company that make services for companies or people) ? I can make one more year to get a mechanical degree also.

RE: Engineer field 2.0 Production engineer
I believe there is already a thread on Industrial Engineering here...sort of a dupe:


I think you can do a lot of things with that degree so it all depends on what you want to do. Industrial Engineering is related to Operations Research. Some schools also tie that in with Financial Engineering, although that's become it's own specialty now.

At my college the guys who majored in IE mostly went on directly into work at big consulting firms, investment banks, etc. Had little to do with "industry" or manufacturing. But that may be partly a peculiarity of the U.S. economy.
