I didn’t decide to go into engineering until the week before starting college! I had taken a class in engineering in high school, and I had helped lead a summer program that included STEM outreach. But I just wasn’t sure that’s what I wanted to study in college.
I finally decided on engineering because I knew it was a viable career option, and if I decided to leave engineering later, it would be easy to transfer from engineering into something else. Once I started studying engineering, I found out that I loved it!
What drew me to industrial engineering is how broad it is. It covers many different aspects of work and many different industries. I also liked that it is a lot more business-focused and less “physical design” focused. I like designing systems and that’s what industrial engineers do.
