Can I go into engineering with a statistics degree?

I'm interested in becoming an industrial engineer. Is it possible (does it make sense) for me to get my BS in statistics and MS in industrial engineering?

Hello Dasia,

It depends on your goals. In any engineering discipline you have to statistics classes but that will not be the focus. If you want to go in depth with statistics then I would do it has a BS. I think that starting off developing your thought process as an engineer earlier is better rather than later. I hope this helps.
