The whole industrial engineering field is pretty interesting; it's fascinating to see things scaled up for production, plus all the tweaks (like the lean six sigma type programs) where they are shaving off the redundant steps is really interesting to dive into.Not sure if you have ever seen the oilfield modules they make out West, it is pretty awesome to see the precision of module built off site. Transported umpteen hundred kms, Then reassembled. It is awesome. Modern design is so amazing.
Not sure if I'd feel much of a sense of accomplishment with getting a widget made 0.35% more efficiently, but would be more hands on then fighting through procurements, internal business processes etc to get things done in DND. Even contributing to something that makes a genuine difference is pretty abstract when all you are doing is emails and forms. I really miss getting my hands dirty and crawling around places to figure out how to keep it running.
