Industrial Engineering Technology

Industrial Engineering Technology (IET) is about determining the most effective ways to use people, machines, materials, and information to make a product or to provide a service.

As companies adopt management philosophies of continuous productivity and quality improvement to survive in the increasingly competitive world market, the need for Industrial Engineering Technologists is growing.

Industrial Engineering Technologists figure out how to do things better. They engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity. They work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, energy, and other commodities and therefore save companies money.
