Learn the skills necessary to improve quality and safety, streamline processes, cut costs, and manage people in a wide variety of manufacturing and technical settings.
An accreditable program in Industrial Technology (Industrial Engineering Technology and Supply Chain Management majors) will prepare graduates with the technical and managerial skills necessary to develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment, and energy. Graduates at the associate level will be prepared for immediate employment, but will also be prepared to continue in baccalaureate studies in industrial engineering technology and related upper level studies. Graduates at the baccalaureate level will be prepared for careers in higher levels of system design, integration, and management.
Majors in this degree program
ABET-ETAC: The Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering Technology at the Purdue University campus at West Lafayette is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Graduates of the Industrial Technology program will:
- Graduates must demonstrate the ability to accomplish the integration of systems using appropriate analytical, computational, and application practices and procedures.
- Graduates at the baccalaureate level must demonstrate the ability to apply knowledge of probability, statistics, engineering economic analysis and cost control, and other technical sciences and specialties necessary in the field of industrial engineering technology.
