The industrial controls systems technology minor will allow problem-solvers to apply ladder logic and programming to perform specific tasks and operations. All types of machines and tools are used to manufacture various products that we as a society need or want. As the materials—whether it is metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, or something else—are manufactured, the machines doing all the cutting, shaping, molding, etc. need to be controlled.
Learn how to use electrical, electronic, and fluid power systems and monitor and control the equipment used in the manufacturing processes. You can be prepared for a career as an automation specialist, robotics repair, or production technologist.
This minor is only available for students in the Industrial Technology Management program’s emphasis in Manufacturing Technology Management.
