Major in Industrial Technology, BS (122 credits)

Accredited by NAIT

Technology majors, regardless of the program selected, are required to complete a common core of 24 credits in technical and management courses as part of their program. The core courses and general education requirements for this degree are the same as those listed in the electronics technology major on this page. There is a graduation requirement of a capstone assessment during a student's final year of study.

Specialization in Graphics Technology

Advisors: O. Odesina (860-832-1833) and K. Tracey (860-832-1842)

The graphics technology program prepares students for the field of graphic arts and printing technology, which transfers ink to paper and other substrates to make catalogs, brochures, broadsides, packaging, labels, magazines, signage, newspapers, and many other printed items. Students learn to work with as a design team on communications to be printed or manipulated digitally. The program offers a broad background of experiences and knowledge. Techniques covered include: flexography, photography, direct-to-press, digital imaging, offset lithography, sign making, color manipulation, typography, die-cutting, package design, electronic file manipulation, repurposing for web-page applications including virtual reality, 2D and 3D animation.
