Default Ise

As an ISE grad, I can tell you that our course is pretty much unknown to many companies. They have little to no idea on our scope. ISE was previously a Masters only course which was very good. ISE students tend to learn many mgmt and decision making skills which you will find to be difficult to utilise while you are in your job. The salary is high because many of my peers went into financial industry.

If they do not know about ISE, why would companies hire ISE students then?

Engineering in general. Thats the reason. ISE graduates do not even qualify to take PE. ISE is great if you are already holding some management position. Reality is that ISE is not that well known. Think you will struggle to find universities around Asia Pac that offers this course in the first place. Very different from the mainstream Mech Eng, Elec Eng, Chem, Civil etc...

I disagree. Industrial Engineering is very famous. You can find that degree in every country. You can find it in Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, etc.

Hi, I am in the logistics field and is intending to take either the NUS MSc. in Industrial and Systems Engineering or the MSc in Supply Chain Management.
May I know whether these are value adds to a logistics career to go further up the career ladder?
Or are qualifications absolutely unimportant in logistics industry and only a basic degree is required?
Any kind souls able to share their experiences on this matter?
Thanks.

After doing my Masters in ISE, interacting with 100s of students and professionals in the ISE industry and working for 8 companies doing internships, jobs and projects -- I have realized that the career prospects of ISEs are not only wide but also on an increase.

In fact, I believe the demand of ISEs will always exist, I have explained here in detail -

://.industrialinside.com/what-you-should-know-about-industrial-engineering-jobs/


Also, as far as the job responsibilities are concerned, IEs tend to do a variety of tasks -- related to process improvement, productivity, cutting costs, savings, reducing time, etc.

They work in
-Manufacturing
-Retail
-Healthcare
-Logistics and Supply Chain
- Consulting
- etc.

Here are some of their job roles and what they do on a daily basis -

Hope this helps,
