Programs of Study
INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT DEGREE
Students can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial technology management (ITM) within four different emphasis areas:
This program of study prepares students for careers as managers, supervisors, estimators, and schedulers in the world of building construction. Many of the ITM/BCM majors also earn minors in business administration and occupational safety, even though it is not required by the department.
This area is a blend of building construction and construction safety management techniques. A student earning an ITM/BCSM degree can not only perform the same functions as an ITM/BCM major, but additionally they may operate as safety managers and directors. On a large number of commercial building construction projects, at least one full-time safety manager is required to be on the job site at all times, thus continually generating a need for the additional safety management certification.
Our graduates in ITM/OSM have attained careers as leading safety managers, safety supervisors, loss-control managers, and risk-managers for business, industry, manufacturing, insurance, and government agencies.
Technology Education Degree
Our two programs prepare students to become knowledgeable professionals within their fields and teach at elementary and secondary levels of education.
Agricultural and industrial TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION
Our dual-certification degree is a combination of both the Agricultural Education major and the Technology Education major. It prepares students to obtain their State Department of Education license on the path to becoming a Technology Education teacher and/or an Agricultural Education teacher. This program of study is jointly provided by the Department of Industrial Studies and the School of Agriculture.
