Industrial Engineering Technicians

Education and Training Requirements

High School

In high school, take classes in algebra, geometry, calculus, chemistry, physics, trigonometry, and English. Mechanical drawing, metal shop, and communications will also be helpful. Computers have become the most used tool in industrial engineering, so computer science (especially database management and computer-aided design) classes are critical if you are considering a career in this field. Other recommended courses are shop sketching, blueprint reading, mechanical drawing, and model making, if available.
