(Reuters) - General Electric Co (GE.N) reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit on Friday as orders for its industrial machinery rose across its portfolio.

GE, the world's largest jet engine manufacturer, posted second-quarter net income of $3.69 billion, or 36 cents per share, for the second quarter, from $4.01 billion, or 38 cents per share, a year earlier.

Analysts expected earnings of 35 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Revenue fell 4 percent to $35.1 billion. Analysts expected revenue of $35.56 billion.
