The objective of the Industrial Technology program is to produce a graduate with skills and knowledge needed for technical management positions in industry. Courses in Industrial Technology supplement the student’s associate degree by additional coursework in subjects not previously studied and/or more advanced courses. Industrial Technology (IND) is a 2+2 program that provides the second two years of education leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Technology (BSIT). Prior to entering the program, students must have completed an Associate of Science, Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Technical Studies degree in an Engineering Technology field from a regionally accredited university, college, community college, or technical college. Industrial Technology is a comprehensive major requiring at least thirty- three (33) credit hours of 30000/40000 level coursework, a minimum of twenty-four (24) hours of Industrial Technology technical electives, and a minimum of 124 credit hours total.
BSIT graduates have found employment in industries as Manufacturing Engineers, Quality Engineering Technicians, Production Engineering Technicians, and Engineering Managers.
The student will be preparing to take the Certified Manufacturing Technologist Examination given by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers
The successful student will:
- have a working knowledge of business practices in industry.
- convey good people and communication skills.
- demonstrate knowledge of common practices of employer and employee relationships.
Program Admission Requirements
