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

The INTM program can benefit your company by:

  • Boosting the qualifications of a current employee who shows potential for a higher-level position or expanded responsibilities, but lacks an advanced degree.
  • Creating a Certificate or Short-Course(s) for a team, group, or department that needs specialized training.
  • Providing you with employees with a relevant degree and/or a unique skill set who are eager to gain experience and learn more by doing
  • Offering you the perspective of a student who may be doing related research to help you complete a short-term project
