Degree Programs

The Quality Certificate program helps you prepare for jobs involving statistical process control and industrial experimentation. The program provides recognition of focused study in the techniques of maintaining and improving quality of manufacturing processes. Credits earned in the certificate program may be applied toward an Associate and Bachelor's program in Industrial Engineering Technology.

The Associate of Science (A.S.) IET program helps you acquire the basic communication and practical technical skills necessary for entry-level IET positions. Graduates are eligible to enter the B.S. program. Students must earn a "C" or better in any course that serves as a prerequisite for another course in the A.S. program.

The Bachelor's of Science (B.S.) IET program is open to graduates of the A.S. program and students with transferred or earned credit in prerequisite courses. It broadens your abilities in communication and interpersonal relations, and your knowledge of science, economics, and technical subjects. Students must earn a "C" or better in any course that serves as a prerequisite for another course in the B.S. program, even if the prerequisite is taken as a part of the A.S. program.

IET courses teach practical engineering principles through the use of lectures, textbook problems, and laboratory experiments.
