The curricula of the Department falls into three categories: Engineering Technology, Industrial Technology and Industrial Education.
Engineering Technology is a baccalaureate degree program. It is that part of the technological field which requires the application of scientific and engineering knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in a support of engineering activities; it lies in the occupational spectrum between the craftsman and the engineer at the end of the spectrum closest to the engineer.
Industrial Technology is a baccalaureate degree program designed to prepare individuals for technical managerial, production supervisory, and related types of professional leadership positions. The curriculum, even though built on technical education, has a balanced program of studies drawn from a variety of disciplines relating to industry. Included are a sound knowledge and understanding of materials and manufacturing processes, principles of distribution, and concepts of industrial management and human relations; experience in communications skills, humanities, and social sciences, and a proficiency level in the physical sciences, mathematics, design, and technical skills to permit the graduate to capably cope with typical technical managerial, and production problems.
Industrial Education curriculum leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science for one of the following: industrial art teachers at junior and senior high school levels; or individuals who are, or plan to become, teachers in either a community college or other trade and industrial or technical programs and who, in addition to state requirements, need or desire a college degree.
Students desiring vocational certification should see their major advisor about additional requirements.
The Industrial and Engineering Technology Department also offers a Master's Degree in Engineering Technology (See Graduate Studies section of this catalog.)
