Catalog 2010-2012

Advanced Technology

The University of Northern Iowa makes available, in addition to traditional programs, the opportunity for students to earn program certificates. Program certificates provide an alternative to programs leading to a degree, a major, or a minor; they certify that an individual has completed a program approved by the university. For information on the following certificates, contact the Department of Industrial Technology or the Office of the Registrar, which serves as the centralized registry.

This Advanced Technology Certificate program provides graduate students with the competencies, skills, and knowledge essential for the industrial technology environment where technical, supervisory, and managerial competencies are crucial. This program will provide an alternative to the program leading to the Master of Science in Technology degree, but the student may continue to satisfy the foundation requirement for the Master of Science in Technology degree if it is their desire. Completion of the 15 hours in any one of the seven areas will certify that an individual has completed a program approved by the university. There are seven areas and each will constitute a certificate area of 15 semester hours: Industrial Management, Construction Management, Electrical Engineering Technology, Graphic Communications, Manufacturing Materials, Manufacturing Technology, and Technology Education and Training.

 All graduate students must be admitted to the Graduate College and satisfy all admission requirements specified for the Department of Industrial Technology Master of Science degree program. Upon completion of the 15 hours, the Department of Industrial Technology will award the program certificate.

For information on the following program certificate, contact the Graduate Coordinator of the Department of Industrial Technology.
