Abstract
Industrial Engineering (IE) is a comprehensive and practical emerging major. Due to unclear definition of professional field, there is a certain disparity between IE education in high school and engineering practice. To find the approach to bridge the gap, this paper analyzed IE comparative education characteristics between America and China and the key bottleneck of IE engineering education in domestic high schools. Based on the comparative analysis and the employment statistical data, it can be concluded that domestic IE education is greatly lagged the demand of enterprises, and bridging the gap between IE education and engineering practice is one of the most important things to improve IE. Finally, some practical tactics involving six items to bridge the IE education and engineering practice were proposed.
