Is there a lot of demand for industrial engineers?

Statistically speaking, you’ll find numbers that will vary. Meaning- some would agree here that there are plenty of jobs and some might say there aren’t.

Having done my Masters in IE, I haven’t personally seen anyone NOT having a job or any sort of opportunity within the industrial engineering community, the reason simply being the broad nature of this major.

In fact, here’s a reason I explain the importance of IEs in every need of the hour –

Why will there ALWAYS be demand for industrial engineering jobs

To visually demonstrate what I mean and give you a better sense, here is an infographic I came up with- (I have an example for a chair, but you can include anything in place of it.)

What does this mean to you?

There is no reason to believe that the demand of IEs will go down. Given a company, there will be some aspect of industrial engineering involved in it.

This can be –

  • Manufacturing
  • Consulting
  • Software
  • Marketing
  • Data Analytics
  • Technology
  • Retail
  • Healthcare
  • Logistics
  • and many more that I can’t think right now, but you get the point.

Of course, the nature of the work will vary from company to company, but from a demand standpoint, IEs will always find opportunities.
