Industrial Engineering is the branch of the engineering profession that is concerned with the design, analysis, and control of production and service operations and systems. Originally, an industrial engineer worked in a manufacturing plant and was involved with the operating efficiency of workers and machines. Today, industrial engineers are broadly concerned with productivity and all of the technical problems of production management and control. They may be found working in every kind of organization: manufacturing, distribution, transportation, mercantile, and service. Their responsibilities range from the design of unit operations to that of controlling complete production and service systems. Their jobs involve the integration of the physical, financial, economic, and human components of such systems to attain specified goals. Industrial engineering includes activities such as production planning and control; quality control; inventory, equipment warehouse, and materials management; plant layout; and job and work station design. Industrial engineering programs were started at Columbia in 1919.
