Sarah Ficarra, Industrial Engineering ’11 and MBA ’11
Material Operations Analyst at GE Transportation
Industrial engineering at WPI prepared me to solve some of an organization's toughest process problems. The IE curriculum allowed me to develop the skills to bridge the gap between engineering and management.
I learned critical skills and techniques in class and understood how to apply those tools in real world situations during my projects. I have been seen as a leader in the workplace because of those things. Dedicated professors really work with you so that you master the concepts needed to stand out in the workforce and make a difference in your organization.
