They gain an understanding of common manufacturing processes, warehousing systems, and distribution methods.
Learners develop the quantitative and qualitative reasoning skills necessary to evaluate these systems and propose improvements.
This translates to close to 200,000 new jobs, mostly for engineers.
If you are interested in engineering, and you want to take advantage of this boom, you should strongly consider earning a master's degree in industrial engineering.
If you just finished your undergraduate degree or prefer the structure of in-person learning, you may want to apply to on-campus programs.
