Industrial Engineering

The Industrial Engineering Technology curriculum prepares students to safely service, maintain, repair, or install equipment. Instruction includes theory and skill training needed for inspecting, testing, trouble shooting and diagnosing industrial systems. Practical application in these industrial systems will be emphasized and additional advanced course work may be offered. Graduates should qualify for employment as machining technicians in high-tech manufacturing, rapid-prototyping and rapid-manufacturing industries, specialty machine shops, fabrication industries, and high-tech or emerging industries such as aerospace, aviation, medical, and renewable energy, and the option to sit for industry recognized certification examinations.
