Industrial Engineering vs. Electrical Engineering

So right now I'm trying to decide between the two majors. There are aspects about both fields that interest me equally. If you have experience interning/working in either of these fields can you please describe what were some of the things you were doing and the pros/cons about each specific field. Thanks for the information!

    IE has math involved too, just different kinds. You will have to like statistics if you choose IE. I'm not so sure EE's get paid that much more than IE's because the IE curriculum more readily applies to positions such as management.
