Labour Market

Many companies, both small and large, are eager to recruit IEOR engineers. They mainly work on the design and continuous improvement of systems that manufacture products and serve customers and are often also involved in the design of new products and services. IEOR engineers are not only found in industry but also in many organisational systems of society such as government, health care and hospitals, public service, law enforcement, transport and traffic systems, etc....

Notable examples of what IEOR has to offer in today’s society can be found on the website of the Institute of Industrial Engineering (IIE) which is the international professional organisation of engineers in this discipline.
