For the subject of my research paper I chose the occupation of
Industrial Engineering Technology. This job is very similar to one I might
have since my major might be Industrial Technology. The industrial field
is one that I am very interested in and offers many different jobs to
choose from. A few of the jobs included in the industrial field are;
Industrial Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Industrial Distributor (sales),
and various management positions. All of these are demanding and important
careers, without such professionals businesses would be unable to produce
products necessary for the survival of both the company and the economy.
The industrial field is therefore a promising one because of its constant
need for someone to fill the jobs it includes.
Industrial engineering technologists must be able to do many things.
I will list a few of the requirements of an industrial engineering
technologist in the rest of this paragraph. Industrial engineering
technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and
mathematics to solve problems in research and development, manufacturing,
sales, construction, and customer service. Many engineering technicians
assist engineers and scientists, in research and development. Others work
in production or inspection jobs. Industrial engineering technicians study
the efficient use of personnel, materials, and machines in factories,
stores, repair shops, and offices. They also prepare layouts of machinery
and equipment, plan the flow of work, make statistical studies, and analyze
production costs. Those in research and development build or set up
equipment, prepare and conduct experiments, calculate and record results,
and assist engineers in other ways. Those in manufacturing prepare
specifications for materials, devise or run tests to ensure product quality,
or study ways to improve efficienc...
