The industrial controls systems technology minor through the UW-Platteville Department of Industrial Studies will allow you to develop as a  problem-solver and apply ladder logic and programming when performing specific tasks and operations. You’ll learn to work with and control the different types of machines and tools used to manufacture various products, and the materials involved —whether it is metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, or something else. This breadth of experience can open many career opportunities, such 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.
