Working on Your Behalf

Your membership helps support IIE programs that benefit the whole profession:

Elevates the image and prominence of industrial engineers. By bestowing awards that recognize the achievements of prominent IEs, taking part in high-profile events such as National Engineers Week, and working on campaigns that put industrial engineering in the minds of the public, IIE raises the awareness of contributions made by industrial engineers.

Ensures the continued value of an industrial engineering degree. Through funding and volunteer training, IIE provides ABET accreditation of educational institutions, which ensures the ongoing value of an industrial engineering degree. And to support professional engineering licensure, IIE provides test question evaluation as well as test preparation classes.

Supports industrial engineering education. Scholarships, technical competitions, educational colloquia, and diversity programs are aimed at helping undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students who study industrial engineering so they’ll be successful in their chosen career.

Promotes engineering as a career. Partnering with high-school teachers, career counselors, and even elementary schools, IIE offers a way for young people to see their future in engineering.

IIE Leadership:
How We Are Organized

A volunteer-driven association, the Institute of Industrial Engineers relies on its Board of Trustees—elected from and by the membership—to provide leadership and overall direction to all IIE activities and operations.

A professional administrative staff provides operational
support and development as directed by the Board of Trustees.

Additional leadership is provided by boards, and committees
made up of volunteer members like you.
Are you a hands-on, get involved person? Find out more about how to volunteer with IIE at www.iienet.org/volunteer.

Retired Members are recognized upon application once a member has reached 60 years of age, has paid dues for 25 consecutive years, and is fully retired from work. They are entitled to all the benefits of IIE Professional Membership, may vote in IIE elections, and may hold IIE offices. Contact IIE Member and Customer Support to determine your eligibility.
