Industrial engineering technicians assist industrial engineers in devising efficient systems that integrate workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service. They prepare machinery and equipment layouts, plan workflows, conduct statistical production studies, and analyze production costs.
Most industrial engineering technicians work in manufacturing industries. Most work full time.
Industrial engineering technicians typically need an associate’s degree or a postsecondary certificate. Community colleges or technical institutes typically offer associate’s degree programs, and vocational–technical schools offer certificate programs.
The median annual wage for industrial engineering technicians was $54,280 in May 2017.
Employment of industrial engineering technicians is projected to show little or no change from 2016 to 2026. In large part this is because of projected declines in the manufacturing industries that employ most of them.
