    Although I am working with some company but I still wonder that what is the scope of Industrial Engineering and Management. Since I am working as Maintenance Engineer, which is purely a Mechanical Engineering field.

  2. David F Walter

    You left out the experience of taking a highly complex course from a teacher who does not speak understandable English. A course I took, “Boolean Logic and Switching Theory” was subtitled by the students “The Japanese Mystery Hour”.

  3. Jinna Anderson

    It is a wonderful realm, full of ironies, special camaraderie, highs and blahs. Loved seeing this world. Your posting was very good, apropos.
