Associate of Applied Business in Business Management Technology
The industrial management specialization serves the needs of students who are interested in advancing in a career, updating skills and learning new management techniques.
Industrial management is primarily concerned with planning, organizing and controlling the manufacturing operation, including supervisory and management techniques and systems used in production.
Graduates with an industrial management major have the skills to work in a variety of positions, including project management, quality control, industrial sales, applications, logistics and front-line supervision. Through class discussions, case studies and special projects, students learn to motivate and hire employees, keep accurate financial records and promote a small business. A sequence of courses in human relations and resource management, occupational safety and hygiene, and statistical process control provides students with specialized knowledge and practical skills in industrial management.
The goal of the major is to provide students with a solid foundation in business by enhancing written and oral communication skills, critical thinking abilities, and familiarity with business and manufacturing concepts.
