TalkShow: Industrial Engineering Career Path
The event was the first attempted online talk show held by the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) BINUS University Student Chapter #716 following by the COVID-19 pandemic policies that prohibit arranging any event with numerous people. In the meantime, students tend to be not productive especially when working from home system was ran. Students confront more struggles along the way.
Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) BINUS University Student Chapter #716 as part of industrial engineering, BINUS University aims to offer insights and solutions for BINUS Industrial Engineering students. Industrial engineering is often considered to open up plenty of job opportunities for its fresh graduates. There are 3 industrial engineering major streams, especially in BINUS University; Manufacturing System Engineering, Supply Chain Management, and Service System Engineering. All three involves different set of knowledge and therefore, becomes a very important choice for the students. The talk show was conducted exclusively for industrial engineering students in order to solve students’ bewilderment of choosing the right stream and its correlated career path.
The talk show “Industrial Engineering Career Path” had been held on February 27th, 2021, from 3.00 to 4.30 PM (WIB). There were 3 guests invited as the speaker, chosen from their respective specializations which are Manufacturing Systems with Anjas Bagaskara, Supply Chain Management with Leonardo, and Service Systems Engineering with Mirellie Setiawan. The guests were asked about their experiences of choosing their previous streams, job hunting, goals, and other related questions by the MC.
The sharing sessions provided a lot of insightful information for the participants. Prior to the active sharing session, the each guests gave a simple explanation of the curriculum in each of the streams taken. Taking the manufacturing system engineering stream does not mean that the student will become a machine technician. Instead, students learn about the manufacturing process, the material and production cost analysis, etc. Meanwhile, in the supply chain management system, students learn about the end-to-end process, product warehousing, distribution process, and so on. Service system engineering provides students with the knowledge of people-oriented system and service. The stream includes product development, product marketing, market research, research analysis, and so on. All courses are designed to develop students to fit into managerial positions in each field. Therefore, choosing one of the streams must involve a lot of systematical thinking and reasoning. Different people may have their own unique ways of deciding.
The completion of the sharing session led to the question and answer session. Each guests answered all questions given by the participants with their own perspectives in order to gain multiple points of view. Participants were actively participating in the session. The guests shared their piece of advice for the participants to decide on the streams carefully, never give up on job hunting, and continue on maintaining and building relations to end the event. Even though some trouble happened due to our guests’ internet connection, the event went exactly as planned. The talk show ended with a photo session and a closing from the master of ceremony.
