Career Path Forecast
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, industrial engineers are expected to have employment growth of 14 percent between 2008 and 2018, faster than the average for all occupations.

As firms look for new ways to reduce costs and raise productivity, they increasingly will turn to industrial engineers to develop more efficient processes and reduce costs, delays, and waste.

This focus should lead to job growth for these engineers, even in some manufacturing industries with declining employment overall. Because their work is similar to that done in management occupations, many industrial engineers leave the occupation to become managers. Numerous openings will be created by the need to replace industrial engineers who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force.
