As part of the UW-Platteville Department of Industrial Studies, the metals processing technology minor explores the various properties of metal, the different varieties of metal, and the basic processes to shape, mold, cut, weld, and process metal components. You’ll gain hands-on experience through our labs and interactive classes, as well as student groups like our award-winning American Foundry Society Club. This background will prepare you for careers as a production assistant, production engineer, scheduler, estimator, and more.

This minor is only available for students in the Industrial Technology Management program’s emphasis in Manufacturing Technology Management.
