Industrial Engineering Technology

Program Overview

Industrial Engineering Technology is the science of utilizing the latest in materials, technological techniques and industrial equipment to improve industry efficiency and productivity. The Industrial Engineering Technology program uniquely designed for application in broad spectrum automation industrial technologies including transportation, health, alternate green energy, robotics manufacturing and upcoming nanotechnology. The focus of study will emphasize students\' acquisition of skills for identification of industrial plant processes, concrete understanding of the technological embedded control instrumentation techniques and able to apply hands-on implementation to a specific industry. The courses enable embedded systems integration of knowledge in the applications of electronics, electromechanical, pneumatics, hydraulics, remote distributed sensing network computing for the automation control of devices and equipment in modern functional industries. Upon successful completion of the courses, program graduates will receive an Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Engineering Technology qualifying them to implement/understand specific control system, troubleshoot and provide preventive maintenance of industrial devices: motors, generators, pumps, valves and other actuators using programmable logic controllers, other software controllers, distributed sensors in servomechanisms and adaptive network controlling.
