Industrial Technology

The ETSU Industrial Technology (IT) concentration is a manufacturing and management-oriented curriculum with studies drawn from a variety of disciplines related to industry.  The IT program is designed to educate students to be managers in industry and other technological settings.

Graduates will have gained fundamental technical knowledge and also an understanding of the supervisory and management techniques used throughout industry. Technical competence is developed through various laboratory courses in the Department of Engineering Technology, Surveying, and Digital Media, while management skills and knowledge are supplemented through select courses from the ETSU College of Business & Technology Department of Management and Marketing. 

Industrial Technology graduates develop skills to help solve managerial, technical, and production problems and find numerous employment opportunities in a wide range of industrial settings.  Prior to graduation, qualified students may take advantage of numerous local and/or regional Co-op (for ETSU credit) or part time/full time (non-credit) employment opportunities to earn money and gain experience.
