Computer systems

Industrial Technology (IT) is a field of study designed to prepare technical and/or management oriented professionals for employment in agriculture, business, education, government and industry. Industrial Technology is primarily involved with the management, operation, and maintenance of complex technological systems.

The faculty of the Department of Industrial Technology enthusiastically lend their expertise and considerable personal experience in their respective fields to help provide students with an enriching learning experience. "Hands-on" lab activities are incorporated in the curriculum to promote rapid student mastery of subjects. It is a team-work approach between faculty and students that ultimately enables the I.T. graduate to emerge with the skills and confidence required for supervisory and managerial positions in industry.
