Industrial Engineering

By Brenda Witherup and Nicole Michaels


Definition of Industrial Engineering: They find the most efficient and effective ways to make things.


Famous Female Engineer

Lillian Gilbreth went to the University of California. Sometimes, she is called the Mother of Modern Management. She is the co-inventor of time and motion studies.


Famous Male Engineer

A Famous male Industrial engineer is Tom Landry. Tom Landry is a former Dallas Cowboys Coach who attended the University of Houston.


Dr. Tayfur Altoik

Apart from being a teacher at Rutgers, Dr. Altoik has published many things. He has written books on the design of manufacturing systems. Also, he has published journals on his research.


Job Possibilities

  • After graduating from school, there are two great jobs available to industrial engineers.
  • You can use computers to test new designs for cars.
  • You can develop molding processes for new products.

Project #1

This project is to reenact the simulation of the air traffic over the Atlantic ocean. What the people at Rutgers basically do is test to see how airplanes fly over the Atlantic ocean and see how they land, speed up, etc.


Project #2

The second project we researched has to do with on- line monitoring when certain measurements yield a profile. In other words, people at Rutgers are programming computers to, in a way, help them with experiments. The computer is set to read things such as pressure, temperature, and other kinds of measurements. If an object reaches a certain temperature, the computer knows what it has to do. It knows to turn down the heat, or to stop. The computer can sense when something is not right, and can fix it.


Three Tasks:

  • They design the layout of industrial plants and factories.
  • Develop systems that blend materials, equipment, information, and workers into the overall production process.
  • Choose what manufacturing procedures to use.


An industrial engineer can receive a lot of money for their work. They can earn up to $73,000 a year.

In order to become an Industrial engineer, you need a bachelor’s degree in engineering. Your high school classes need to include: calculus, geometry, algebra, physics, chemistry, trig, English, computer science, and mechanical drawing.
