What does an industrial technologist do?

Industrial technologists combine engineering and manufacturing technology to make all types of production faster, simpler, and more efficient. Most industrial technologists work in the oil field, but there are opportunities spanning all industries, plus education and government.

Industrial Technology is about half business, half technology — you are responsible for leading teams of people to develop innovative and creative improvements for the operation and maintenance of complex technological systems.
