Industrial engineers solve complex problems involving people, materials, information, equipment, and energy. Industrial engineers design assembly lines, streamline an emergency room in a hospital, or work to reduce waiting times at an amusement park.
Bryan Corder (2009) completed the 3/2 engineering program at WVU and is an industrial engineer at Bechtel-Bettis in Pittsburgh. Bryan writes, “We are developing energy systems for spacecraft to fly beyond the Solar System. Wesleyan and WVU provided me with a great opportunity using the Dual-Degree Engineering program. Your careful planning made the transfer easy. And Wesleyan’s high standards prepared me well for the university.”
