Electrical engineers are responsible for the generation, transmission, and distribution of electric power. They locate hydroelectric, steam, diesel engine, and nuclear power plants, and specify the engines, generators, and auxiliary equipment for these plants. These engineers have contributed to the development of electric-generating stations in the United States that have a capacity of about 700 million kilowatts and generate over 3 trillion kilowatt-hours of power annually.

8 INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING Industrial engineers are concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, and energy in the production of either goods or services (7, 12). They engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity (13). They are primarily interested in problems that involve economy in the use of money, materials, time, human effort, and energy (11). They are more concerned with the “big picture” of industrial management and production than with the detailed development of processes (3).
