Industrial Engineers determine the most effective ways for an organization to use the basic factors of production: people, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service. They are the bridge between management goals and operational performance. They are concerned with increasing productivity through the management of people, methods of business organization, and technology. Although most industrial engineers work in manufacturing industries, they also work in consulting services, healthcare, and communications.
Mechanical Engineers research, develop, design, manufacture, and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices. They work on power-producing machines such as refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, machine tools, material handling systems, elevators and escalators, industrial production equipment, and robots used in manufacturing. The field of nanotechnology, which involves the creation of high-performance materials and components by integrating atoms and molecules, is introducing entirely new principles to the design process
