Bachelor of Science Industrial Technology (4 Year Program)

Hand

An industrial technology degree prepares students to work in industrial environments (manufacturing firms, refineries, chemical plants, and logistics companies). 

Industrial Technology deals not only with things but also with people, finance, information, and the environment. Industrial Technology answers complex questions:

  • How can we improve safety, quality, productivity and service?
  • What products or services should we offer? What price should we charge?
  • What materials and methods should we use?
  • How can we best motivate and reward people?
  • How much inventory do we need?
  • Where should we locate our plants, stores, and warehouse?
  • How can we use our historic data to improve our business?
  • How can we improve our product design to reduce manufacturing cost and improve quality?

Industrial Technology students add a BS degree with a focus on technology management to their technology background.
