Integrated Industrial Technology

Leeward's newest program

Information Session to learn more about registering for Spring classes: November 28 at 5pm in CE 404.

Get the skills you need for a job in the emerging industrial technology industry! The IIT program provides you with a theoretical and practical understanding of mechatronic systems as well as develops practical skills and systems integration. Graduates will be able to program, operate, maintain, calibrate, and repair the equipment that makes up these systems.

You'll be prepared for jobs that involve the integration of electronic, electrical, mechanical, and communications systems. Typical occupations may include:

  • Electro-Mechanical Technician
  • Mechanical Engineering Technician
  • Manufacturing Production Technician
  • Robotics Systems Technician
  • Process Control Systems Integration Technician

Process Technician working with automation

Degree and certificate requirements

About the Program

  • Associate in Science (61 credits) prepares you to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills in support of engineers and other professionals engaged in developing, installing, calibrating, modifying and maintaining automated systems. Includes instruction in computer systems; electronics and instrumentation; programmable logic controllers (PLCs); electric, hydraulic and pneumatic control systems; actuator and sensor systems; process control; robotics; applications to specific industrial tasks; and report preparation.
  • Certificate of Achievement (31 credits) can be earned in two semesters. The objective of the Certificate program is to give you basic skills for an entry-level job.
  • Certificate of Competence (15 credits) can be earned in one semester. The objective of the Certificate program is to give you basic skills for an entry-level job.

The time to complete the certificates or the degree varies from one to four semesters. To obtain the associate degree in two years, you have to take an average of 15 credits/semester.

Costs: tuition and fees

All required IIT courses must be passed with a grade of “C” or better in order to be applied to all degrees and certificates.
