What is the program about?

The Industrial Engineering Technology (IET) program prepares individuals for leadership roles in the operations of business, industry, and service organizations with a special emphasis on IET skills. Students learn analysis, continuous improvement, quality assurance, and problem solving techniques that can be applied toward financial, health care, manufacturing, and service/retail fields. Students take part in lecture-lab structured courses and hands-on demonstrations of course principles, assuring that they will gain practical knowledge as well as the fundamentals. Those who wish to further their studies may transfer to four-year colleges and universities. This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will be automatically awarded when the certificate requirements are completed. If you do not want to receive the embedded certificate(s), please notify Registration and Student Records at
