Industrial Technology (IT) is a field of study designed to prepare technical and/or management oriented professionals for employment in business, industry, education, and government. Industrial Technology is primarily involved with the management, operation, and maintenance of complex technological systems.
Typically, the graduate finds employment as a Manufacturing Engineer, Process Engineer, Production Supervisor, Quality Systems Engineer, Technical Specialist, and Plant Manager. Positions in Industrial and technical sales, design and testing also offer the graduate abundant opportunities.
The faculty of the Department of Industrial Technology enthusiastically lend their expertise and considerable personal experience in their respective fields to assure individual student master of courses and area concentration. "Hands-on" lab participation in most Industrial Technology courses, too, is incorporated in the curriculum to promote rapid student mastery of subjects. It is a team-work approach between faculty and students that ultimately enables the I.T. graduate to emerge with the skill and confidence required for supervisory positions in industry.
