Is Industrial Engineering Hard?
How hard a major is depends on the school, the program, the professors, your abilities and your dedication to your classes. In general engineering is considered to be more difficult than accounting or finance.
Industrial engineering usually includes courses such as:
- Supply chain management
- Transportation management
On its own, the major may not be too useful for breaking in to banking. If you combine with major with operations research (OR), you may be better prepared for finance roles. OR requires more advanced mathematics but you can learn more about optimization methodologies and stochastic modeling and processes.
