Currently, Industrial Engineering is one of the most sought after degrees in Mexico, with a great opportunity to join the productive sector as the Industrial Engineering work field is large.
Every public or private company, small or large needs an Industrial Engineer to evaluate both quality and productivity and provide consulting and professional counselling.
The Industrial Engineering work field is located in both the productive and service sectors such as micro-, small and medium-sized companies to plan production, implement quality systems and maintain the plant, collaborate in the formal strategical planning and assure quality and ecological protection at different levels and as a supervisor, manager or director.
Within the services sector, industrial engineers work in the organisation and administration of communication services, trading and finances. In order to succeed, an interrelationship among professionals from different disciplines is needed as well as group leadership and multicultural work meetings.
The automotive industry usually hires industrial engineers for the productive sector. Within the last decade, industrial engineering has faced a number of changes from mechanical to electronical methods to process qualitative designs into new techniques which need modelling, simulation and a wide use of statistics, a centred production approach into an integrating approach of systems. Interest has moved from a fairly small systems to microsystems and the analysis of more complex and larger systems.
Some of the specific areas of development are listed below:
