A Famous male Industrial
engineer is Tom Landry.
Tom Landry is a former
Dallas Cowboys Coach
who attended the
University of Houston.
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
After graduating from school, there are two
great jobs available to industrial engineers.
1. You can use computers to test new designs
2. You can develop molding processes for new
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.
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.
1. They design the layout of industrial
plants and factories.
2. Develop systems that blend materials,
equipment, information, and workers
into the overall production process.
3. Choose what manufacturing
procedures to use.
