Questions relating to industrial engineering are answered. At the master's degree level, some departments and schools in industrial engineering offer a concentration, but since most master's degrees require 30 to 36 credit-hours, the depth may not be as much. The author recommends that you think about what you want to do in the future and then carefully review various programs in both IE and business. The term "professional engineer," however, is legally defined and the practice of professional engineering is protected by a government body. Professional engineers have the authority to sign and stamp engineering documents, thus taking legal responsibility. The author doesn't think there is a study that breaks down where IEs work by standard industrial classification code. He suggests you where he sees the future growth of IEs. First and foremost, it will be in the service industry. Find a career that interests you, and you will do well and prosper.
