The college’s programs focus primarily on the preparation of professionals desiring to become managers, process technologists, supervisors, instructors/trainers, pilots, and teachers in the areas of industry, education, business, and government. The technological segment of society provides exciting careers for persons who want to combine theory and application in their study. Students may pursue a bachelor’s degree in any of the following: advanced manufacturing management, automation and control engineering technology, automotive engineering technology, aviation administration, career and technical education, computer engineering technology, construction management, electronics technology, human resource development for higher education and industry, mechanical engineering technology, packaging, professional aviation flight technology, technology and engineering education, and technology management. Students may complete an associate degree in the following area: electronics and computer technology.

Advanced Placement. Students who possess knowledge and skill in a particular technology may apply for advanced standing. This particularly applies to students with pilot certification and completion of the Project Lead the Way courses. Based on an evaluation, students may receive credit for beginning courses. Application for advanced placement should be made to the departmental chairperson.

Internship and Professional Practice Programs. All students in the College of Technology are encouraged to take advantage of career-related experience in industry (e.g. internships or cooperative education). Up to six hours of academic credit may be earned toward completion of the bachelor of science degree.

The Degreelink Program. DegreeLink is a means for students to build upon an associate’s degree and earn a bachelor’s degree from ISU by taking classes at a distance or by enrolling at the Terre Haute campus. DegreeLink is an extended access, degree-completion program which enables students who have earned credit hours and an associate degree from accredited collegiate institutions to transfer credit hours, as a block or on a course-by-course basis, to ISU baccalaureate degree programs. The College of Technology offers numerous baccalaureate degree programs in this manner. (Refer to the DegreeLink Program description in this Catalog.)

Accreditation. The following programs are accredited through the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering: Advanced Manufacturing Management, Automotive Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology, Electronics Technology, Packaging, and Technology Management. The Construction Management Program is accredited through the American Council for Construction Education. The Technology/Engineering Education Program is accredited through the North Central Association for Teacher Education. All other programs go through regular, rigorous internal and external review.
