SUNY Canton’s newest bachelor’s degree will offer an additional four-year opportunity for students beginning or continuing their education in the Canino School of Engineering Technology.
Industrial Technology Management builds upon the college’s existing engineering technology programs. The program was created since many successful engineers transition to supervisory and management roles. It leverages the discipline of technology to prepare graduates for leadership in industry.
“For over 45 years, graduates from our Engineering Technology programs and our other career-driven majors have enjoyed very high placement rates and excellent salaries,” said SUNY Canton Provost Jeremy D. Brown. “As the demand for qualified educated graduates expands, many companies are requiring a bachelor’s-level degree to move into management level positions. Industrial Technology Management provides a springboard for management and leadership careers.”
Future SUNY Canton students, recent graduates, and transfer students can apply for admission into the four-year degree immediately. Program-specific courses are slated to begin Fall 2007.
Following in the footsteps of SUNY Canton’s other four-year programs, Industrial Technology Management was designed to prepare students for upper-level careers. “By integrating the knowledge gained from the technical and managerial courses in this program, graduates will experience significant career flexibility and leadership growth opportunities” said Canino School of Engineering Technology Dean David J. Wells.
Industrial Technology Management is the College’s thirteenth bachelor’s degree and is the fourth four-year degree in the Canino School. “There has been strong demand for this kind of education and it will be as successful as our highly-acclaimed Alternative and Renewable Energy Technology Program,” Wells said.
