This program is offered at Clark State's Bellefontaine and Springfield - Leffel Lane locations.

The Industrial Technology program has been developed in response to the great need expressed by manufacturers in the Champaign, Clark, Greene, and Logan County areas for skilled technicians. The program is intended to train for career fields such as machine repair technician, electrical maintenance technician, or industrial maintenance mechanic.

Technical coursework in the program is designed such that it can be used to support company-sponsored apprenticeship programs.

Some required courses for the Associates degree are offered only at the Springfield location. In addition to applied technical courses, Industrial Technology includes a co-op experience. Students must complete EBE 1000, Employability Skills, and then work with Career Services to secure an appropriate co-op site.

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of an associate degree in Industrial Technology, a graduate will be able to:

  • Use computers in troubleshooting, maintenance planning, and report writing.
  • Use commonly-available instruments, schematics, operating manuals, and troubleshooting guides.
  • Demonstrate and understand the safety requirements for working in an industrial setting.
  • Demonstrate fundamental knowledge of power machinery.

Directed Learning Laboratory
Clark State Community College has recognized the need for students who are currently working to have flexible class hours. As a result, many of the courses in the Industrial Technology program will be offered in the College’s Directed Learning Laboratory. Most Industrial Technology (INT) courses, along with other selected technical courses, will be offered in a modular format that will allow students to come to the lab on their own schedule and complete the coursework and laboratory assignments. The lab will be staffed by a faculty member and is open day, evening, and Saturday hours to accommodate many working schedules. The days and times that students complete the coursework in the lab is up to the individual student within the open hours of the lab.  The ability to learn on an independent basis will help ensure student success in this program.

Embedded Certificate This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will automatically be awarded if the certificate requirements are met unless the student contacts Records and Registration and indicates he/she does not wish to have the certificate credential awarded. (Effective Spring Semester 2017)

Transfer Options
Students enrolled in Associate of Applied Business and Associate of Applied Science degree programs are preparing for employment upon graduation from the program. However, at some point many of these students are also interested in completing a bachelor's degree. A number of colleges or universities have designed bachelor's completion programs designed for students completing applied degrees. See the Transfer section of the catalog for more information.

Scholastic Preparation
Students should have had one year of high school algebra or the equivalent. Students may take preparatory courses at Clark State, but it will require a longer amount of time to complete their degree program.
