Industrial Engineering is not like other engineering disciplines which applies skills to very specific areas but it is about application of science, mathematics, and engineering methods to complex system integration and operations, where it gives you the opportunity to work in a variety of bussinesses. The most distinctive aspect of industrial engineering is the flexibility that it offers. Whether its shortening a rollercoaster line, streamlining an operating room, distributing products worldwide, or manufacturing superior automobiles, all share the common goal of saving money and increasing efficiencies.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
