Manufacturing Technology Management

Preparing to pour molten metal

The manufacturing technology professional works with managers, engineers, production employees, scientists, and supervisors in the industrial world. Possessing much of the "know-why” and "know-how" of industry, they work with and contribute to the ideas of the professional engineers and management. They also supervise and manage the utilization of materials and machines for producing, distributing, and servicing industrial products.

Manufacturing technology management (MTM) assists students in developing an understanding of people, tools, materials, and machines, as well as processes and their relationship to industrial production. UW-Platteville's program prepares graduates to solve technical and human problems in different manufacturing situations.

The manufacturing technology management graduate is a valuable liaison person linking the technical engineering with the supervision/management components. They are well-educated in the principles of management, supervision, and technology, and are able to work with a wide range of industrial techniques and processes. To meet the diverse demands of the profession, the program provides a solid background in mathematics, physical science, communication skills, management, human relations, economics, and computing applications.

Strengths of Industrial Technology at UW-Platteville

UW-Platteville's Department of Industrial Studies offers technology management programs that are fully accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Technology (ATMAE) (formerly called National Association of Industrial Technology or NAIT). The major allows students the flexibility to fulfill individual desires and needs and provides an opportunity for the in-depth education needed to deal with the complex problems of modern industry.

Manufacturing technology management majors must select at least one of the technical minors.  (They are listed in the side panel.)
