The Applied Integrated Technology degree offers a unique, interdisciplinary program which prepares students for positions in high technology fields applying Mechatronic principles to the operation and maintenance of electro-mechanical-computer controlled systems commonly found in Advanced Manufacturing environments. The comprehensive curriculum integrates electrical, mechanical, and computer controls so that students will be prepared to work in the operations, installation, and maintenance of automated and robotically controlled systems and manufacturing technologies. Students are provided with extensive hands-on laboratory experience and work on team projects that simulate industry scenarios.
Upon completion of the program graduates will be qualified for the jobs such as industrial maintenance and manufacturing including assembly, testing, startup, troubleshooting, repair, and upgrades of machinery and the associated control systems.
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.

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