The Applied Integrated Technology degree offers a unique, interdisciplinary program which prepares students for positions in high technology fields applying the principles of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems. The comprehensive curriculum addresses the impact of technology on engineering and manufacturing processes, and carefully integrates machining, optical, electrical, mechanical, and manufacturing technologies. Students are provided with extensive hands-on laboratory experience and work on team projects which simulate industry scenarios.
Upon completion of the program students can be placed directly in careers as technicians in product design, system troubleshooting, manufacturing process development, evaluation of components and systems, and translating engineering designs into end-products.
Alternatively, students who may want to transfer to a four year baccalaureate degree may need to complete additional bridge courses.

Students should meet regularly with their program advisor to make certain that their course selections meet the requirements of the program and their career choices.

Recommended preparation: Three years of high school mathematics are required through Sequential Math III (Regents level strongly recommended), and one-half year of physics or physical science is recommended.

Program Learning Outcomes
1) Develop a manufacturing plan to produce a product that includes workflow material requirements and distribution.
2) Use SolidWorks to design components and assemblies from concept to prototype.
3) Use Mastercam to develop machining programs.
4) Determine material specification based upon design intent product usage and manufacturing processes.
5) Design testing procedures to ensure that components meet specifications.
6) Work within a team environment to design develop or evaluate products.
7) Effectively communicate ideas with others using technology such as email and PowerPoint presentations.

* MTH 140 and MTH 141 is a sequence. Students who plan to transfer to a four-year program may wish to substitute the three course sequence MTH 160 (3 cr.), MTH 164 (1 cr.) and MTH 165 (3 cr.). Students not proficient in algebra or trigonometry should take MTH 135 preferably in Summer Session prior to starting Applied Integrated Technology. Students with excellent high school math records may wish to select a more advanced math program following consultation with the Mathematics Department.

** Technical Elective: Any course in CIT, ELT, MET, OPT, or see department chairperson for a substitution waiver.
