Industrial Technology, B.S.

About the Program

Accreditation: Association of Technology Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE.org)

The industrial technology program, through its two concentrations, provides students with the opportunity to develop a specialty within a broader framework of technical operations knowledge. By selecting the manufacturing concentration, the student specializes in direct manufacturing support of a technical or managerial nature. Knowledge of management principles, physical sciences, technology of industry, and liberal arts is employed to optimize manufacturing processes, materials, and personnel. The quality concentration allows the student to develop the ability to assist the product or service organization in obtaining the maximum level of quality performance in a lean environment. This concentration requires a professional internship that places the student in a specialty position in a local organization as a culminating activity.

Program graduates have filled positions as industrial engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality-assurance specialists, directors of technology, production/lean operations managers, corporate trainers, cost estimators, purchasing managers, first line supervisors, supply chain managers, distribution supervisors, safety engineers, drafting specialists, technical writers, web masters, and technical sales and marketing specialists.
