Industrial technology is the study of materials, production processes, and management procedures used in industry. This degree program prepares you for a technical/ management position in industry by providing current and relevant subject matter and experience. Typically, an industrial technology graduate is responsible for management and supervision of industrial computers, materials, machines, and personnel in areas of production, process planning, maintenance, and quality assurance.
The industrial technology program prepares you to be a technical generalist: one who is competent in a wide range of technical subjects. In addition, since most industrial technology courses are hands-on lab courses, you graduate with practical experience. All students in the program complete a common core of industrial technology courses. In addition, you must take courses in one of two technical focus areas: Manufacturing Materials and Processes (MMP) or Manufacturing Information Technology (MIT), depending on your interests and career goals. The BSIT degree includes a minor in business.
There are four components to the curriculum: technical, general education, business, and elective courses. Each component contributes a valuable part to your overall preparation for employment.
