Building the Future of Industry

Industrial Technology and Management (INTM) is focused on education for industry. In all fields, there are technical specialists who have the smarts, talent and desire to move ahead in their careers, but they are often held back by the lack of an advanced degree, managerial skills, or a broader knowledge of industrial activities. The INTM program offers a bachelor’s and master’s degree for individuals building a career in industry. The curriculum acquaints students with the range of technologies employed in industry and how those tools are best utilized to improve operations, increase productivity and reduce waste. Managerial topics are inherently coupled with applied technology. Students learn how to manage costs, projects, and personnel; analyze operational processes to identify and correct problems; and develop the ‘big picture’ viewpoint required to manage complex and/or sizeable operations.

Improving your Company through Educated Employees

As an employer, you know the challenges of finding qualified employees, especially individuals who can step into a position and get up to speed quickly. The answer is education…

  • for a current employee who shows outstanding potential for a higher-level position or expanded responsibilities;
  • for a team, group or department, to expand their knowledge and skills and/or help them understand and implement new systems;
  • by hiring a new employee who holds a relevant degree and/or a unique skill set and is eager to gain experience and learn more by doing; or
  • for personal development, to expand your own knowledge and capabilities.

INTM programs are designed for working adults. Courses are held evenings and Saturdays, and all lectures are available online. Students may take a few courses for professional development, or pursue a formal degree or a certificate. The curriculum covers a broad range of topics applicable to industry, and four specializations are available to all students: Industrial Facilities – Industrial Sustainability – Manufacturing Technology – Supply Chain Management.

Meet our Students

Employers are invited to visit IIT’s Main Campus to meet our students and faculty. We would value the opportunity to establish a mutually beneficial industry-education partnership.

  • Meet with one or more departments to discuss hiring needs and requirements.
  • Make a presentation to a student group to talk about industry trends, needs, and opportunities, to include those of the company.
  • Participate in an IIT Job Fair. Employers hiring for multiple positions may register for IIT’s major job fairs held in January and September, or opt to attend a “Career Connections” event, which allows for brief on-campus interviews in April and November.
  • Employers who wish to attract candidates from multiple majors should register for “NACElink”, IIT’s online jobs database.
