What does a graduate in Industrial Systems Engineering do?

Industrial engineers are, in a way, the orchestra conductors of industrial processes. They analyze, design, manage and improve processes from production systems and services to assignment and programming of personnel, resources, quality control, inventories, and security.

In other words, they integrate people, machinery, information, materials, and energy into complex processes to make a product or provide a service.

That is why industrial engineering is one of the areas of knowledge with the greatest impact in the world of engineering and global economy.

In México, engineering careers have experienced enormous growth in recent years, making it a source of talent for multiple industries that operate in the United States, given its proximity, cultural compatibility, and bilingual talent.

At Arkansas State University Campus Querétaro, we will prepare you to be a professional with the skills to specialize in any of the areas (new and traditional) of industrial engineering. With this degree, you will be a certified professional in Mexico and the United States, which opens a world of possibilities.

Apply now, start your path in the world of industrial engineering and get ready to do your part in building a better future.
