I think it’s really important to understand that your degree does not define you. Obtaining an ISyE degree allows us to gain many skills and tools that can be applied to a multitude of different fields. I think having this degree will allow you to stand out when compared to other candidates, for the technical background we obtained through the ISyE program has challenged us to think outside of the box.
I think Industrial Engineering is a great major to go into many different fields. Improving processes and finding efficiency is relevant to all industries. I make sure to highlight this in my interviews. In addition, our education is extremely helpful as it is a combination of key business classes with key engineering, data, and computer science classes. I think our experience in all different topics makes us able to learn fast and adjust to various fast paced scenarios! We are jacks of all trades! 🙂
