What is Integrated Engineering Technology?
The Integrated Engineering Technology Program is a multi-disciplinary project-based program. With lean manufacturing processes as the focused approach, the program exposes students to lean concepts that apply to the technical aspects of electrical and mechanical integrated technology that are essential in the design, installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of automated and complex manufacturing systems. The program includes a study of the importance of personal professional behavior in the workplace and presentation skills that are implemented into all individual technical courses within the curriculum. Technical instruction consist of but are not limited to the study of programmable logic controllers, robotics, various types of mechanical and programmable drives, electronic input and output sensing devices, and electro-hydraulic / pneumatic systems and equipment.
This program allows for several exit points for students, including two certificates, Diploma and AAS degree in Integrated Engineering Technology and a transfer option to complete a BS in engineering technology at UK.

WHERE ARE Integrated Engineering Technology GRADUATES EMPLOYED?
This is a new Program at BCTC and no information is available at this time. The degree development was supported by Toyota, Tempur Sealy, Lexmark, Bullard, and Mubea North America.
A program plan describes the degree requirements (courses) and the sequence for completing the courses. Students are required to schedule an appointment with their assigned academic advisor to ensure achievement of their academic goals.
Length of Program
Completion of the program should take two years, assuming that you maintain full-time enrollment status.
This information should not be considered a substitute for the KCTCS Catalog. You should always choose classes in cooperation with your faculty advisor to ensure that you meet all degree requirements.
