Manufacturing Industrial Technology


Program Description:

The current global economy has forced manufacturers to confront new competitive challenges including a global market, reduced product life cycles and customer demand for diverse, high quality products. Successful American manufacturers have addressed these new challenges by installing state-of-the-art flexible computerized equipment and by implementing new agile organizational structures for efficient utilization of the new manufacturing technology. As a student in the IT Manufacturing program you will study both aspects of this new manufacturing strategy. While working in our Flexible Manufacturing laboratory, you will use state-of-the-art computerized equipment as you participate in "hands-on" manufacturing process courses. You will also learn business strategies used by manufacturers to improve competitive advantage. The IT Manufacturing program is designed to prepare graduates to assume leadership roles in the management of advanced manufacturing technology.
