    We are a non-profit organization dedicated solely towards developing the industrial engineering community of Pakistan. We are striving to spread the awareness about the field and create a network of our professionals both nationally and internationally.

  • Membership Information

    Pakistan Society of Industrial Engineers is a dedicated non-profit organization which has a mission to serve the industrial engineers of Pakistan. We are striving to create a community of IEs of our country and will be linking them up with the international communities of Industrial Engineers.

  • Student Chapter at your University

    We are looking to develop the industrial engineering community of Pakistan. Our aim is to gather all the students and professional IEz. Our organization is looking to not only form a network of industrial engineers within Pakistan but we are also looking to connect the Pakistani industrial engineers who are residing outside of our country. We wish to provide them with latest from the field updates as well as receive their feeds related to latest developments in the field outside.

  • Frequently Asked Questions about Industrial Engineering

    We have prepared a special section in our website dedicated to answering most frequently asked questions about the field of Industrial Engineering specially for Pakistani Industrial Engineers who mostly require a lot of assistance in understanding their role in industries and what kind of job they are to perform.

Q1. What is special about Industrial Engineering?
Industrial Engineering is a diverse discipline with many areas of specialization.  Other engineering disciplines apply skills to specific areas therefore making you focus at limited areas but an IE degree will provide you with the skills to work in a variety of businesses .As an IE you learn to make decisions concerning the best use of people, material, equipment and energy in achieving an organization’s aim.

Q2. Will I get a job with a degree in Industrial Engineering?
Yes, Industrial Engineers have a bright future and are in high demand in almost all of the countries (Pakistan needs them the most). With a major in IE, many people are serving many organizations and industries and have been the reason for great improvements. IE’s can work in almost all of the sectors (for example; aerospace, banking, consulting, entertainment, manufacturing industries, medical services, transportation and the list goes on). They are one of the most highly paid professionals and almost all of them are satisfied with their job roles. IE’s end up being promoted to management positions.

Q3. Would I like Industrial Engineering?
Do you enjoy knowing how things work? Do you think of new and better ways of doing things? Do you like to figure things out? Do you get good grades in mathematics? Do you take things apart and put them back together with fewer parts?
If the answer to the above all is “Yes” then Industrial Engineering is for you. It’s a profession both suitable for males and females.

Q4. What are the areas of specialization?
The major areas of specialization involves Human Factors Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Operations Research, Quality Engineering, Simulation Modeling, and Project Management

Q5. Can you give few examples regarding what IE’s do actually?
There are a lot of examples; few of them are given below which will give you basic idea of what IE’s actually do:
Reconfigure airport check services to shorten lines and make passengers happier
Design a more efficient car assembly line to save on manufacturing costs
Streamline an operating room so that is safer, faster and easier to use
Determine the fastest way to transport perishable goods cross-country, even during bad weather.

All of these roles share the common goal of saving companies money and increasing efficiencies (in short “improvement”)

Industrial Engineer's job is to improve productivity & cut cost in any system that involves people, money, information etc. Engineering, Procurement and Construction is no other in fact in Engineering IEs are directly involved in improving product design, its assembly system design as well as analysis, in procurement they are responsible for improving and speeding up the processes, same is the case in Construction.

what do u say about which it is more closely related either management or manufacturing?

In addition to IE information FAQ should include possible questions & their answers about PSIE
