Associate in Applied Science Degree
Students enrolled in this program will be seeking employment as technicians that lead to supervisory positions in advanced manufacturing. These positions involve some level of resource (human and physical) management, planning, and budgeting in the advanced-manufacturing setting.
In their initial stages of employment graduates of this program may be involved in strictly technician positions such as those described below in the existing degree, but the purpose of this program in Industrial Technology-Management is to provide the students with education and some job experience (through internships) that will prepare them for management- level employment in the long run.
Industrial technicians who move into supervisory and managerial positions in advanced manufacturing monitor and direct other technicians, lead teams, schedule work activities and repairs, and assist managers in planning.
