The Bachelor of Industrial Technology and Management/Master of Industrial Technology and Operations (BINTM/MITO) co-terminal degree program provides an attractive opportunity for BINTM students who intend to pursue a graduate degree. The seamless format of the curriculum, the reduction of total credit hours and overall time required, and the ability to maintain undergraduate financial aid scholarships are positive attributes of the co-terminal degree program.
Co-Terminal BINTM/MITO Curriculum
The BINTM/MITO co-terminal program effectively mirrors the BINTM and MITO program curricula, however three (3) courses/9 credit hours of undergraduate requirements are dually applied toward graduate degree requirements. This reduces the total credit hours ordinarily required to complete both degrees from 156 to 147. The graduate curriculum remains flexible to suit students’ professional and career interests. Students will work with an academic adviser to ensure program requirements for both degrees are satisfactorily achieved. Required coursework is as follows:
60 hours: BINTM Admission Requirements (transfer)
27 hours: BINTM Core Courses: INTM 301, 315, 322, 404, 408, 410, 425, 441, 459
21 hours: INTM Electives (Technical/Specialization)
21 hours: INTM Graduate Electives; at least 18 hours must be 500-level INTM courses
6 hours: Interprofessional Projects (IPRO)
6 hours: Upper-level Humanities Electives (300-/400-level)
6 hours: Upper-level Social Science Electives (300-/400-level)
To apply for the BINTM/MITO co-terminal program, active BINTM students must submit the online application during their senior year (the student must hold an undergraduate designation of U4 or U5). Applicants must have at least 12 undergraduate credits left to complete in the first semester of co-terminal study. Applicants must have an undergraduate GPA of 3.25 to qualify for admission. The application process can be completed online by following this process:
- Log in to your myIIT portal
- Within the 'Academics' menu, navigate to the Undergraduate Academic Affairs channel
- Select 'Co-Terminal Degree Program Application'
Once admitted, students must maintain a GPA of 3.0/4.0 to remain in the program; if GPA falls below this minimum, the student will be dismissed from the co-terminal program.
Completing Co-Terminal Requirements
Students admitted to the co-terminal program are required to consult with an academic adviser each semester to confirm course choices meet co-terminal requirements. Co-terminal students retain undergraduate status and thereby continue to qualify for undergraduate scholarships. Students will receive both the BINTM and MITO degrees upon completion of all co-terminal requirements.
Co-terminal students must complete an e-form through the Graduate Degree Works system which identifies ‘Shared’ and ‘non-Shared’ courses for the co-terminal degree. Co-terminal students should meet with their academic adviser regarding this requirement. Students may apply for graduation at the start of their last semester of attendance through the myIIT portal.
