Industrial Technology (Applied Engineering)
The Roadmap to Success program in industrial technology was created by Kilgore College and The University of Texas at Tyler Longview University Center to provide the details necessary for you to earn industrial technology associate and bachelor's degrees in an efficient and affordable way close to home.
Industrial technology (applied engineering) is a field of study concerned with the application of basic engineering principles and technical skills in support of industrial engineers and managers.
Industrial technology programs typically include instruction in optimization theory, human factors, organizational behavior, industrial processes, industrial planning procedures, computer applications, and report and presentation preparation.
Most starting salaries exceed $50,000 and are competitive with most other engineering fields. In 2012, the median salary for an industrial production manager with a bachelor's degree was $89,190, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
