Preparing technical and/or technical management oriented professionals for employment in business, industry, and government is the goal of the Industrial Technology program at JSCC. Industrial Technology is essentially concerned with the operation, maintenance, and management of technically complex systems, as opposed to Engineering, which is essentially concerned with the installation of such systems and the research of new concepts.
Industrial Technology graduates typically find employment in such areas as Industrial Technician, Mechanical Drafter, Multi-Craft Maintenance Technician, Control Systems Technician and PLC Programmer. For those with the entrepreneurial spirit, additional opportunities exist in industrial and technical sales.
JSCC's Industrial Technology program has been recognized for the attainment of certain professional goals and standards by being granted accreditation through the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).
The Industrial Technologies' program concentrations strive to provide accessible, quality, affordable, and occupationally-driven courses as related to the goals, objectives, and mission statements of the College and the Industrial Technology area. Each concentration seeks to accomplish this by instructional excellence and collaborative interaction with the industrial community. Student career preparation is grounded in a core of general education and technology based courses intended to prepare the student to function effectively in a technology environment.
