Lake Superior State University

Industrial Technology: Bachelor of Science

Program Description


Your academic experience will include a foundation in the basic sciences, mathematical concepts through algebra and trigonometry, general education, software, technology and automation.

You will learn to apply your skills toward the solution of practical, industrial-type technical problems. During your senior year, you will participate in the construction-and-build semester of a real-world industrial project, working with engineers and company representatives. During your time at LSSU, you will also have developed communication skills that will enable you to grow and succeed in your professional career.

Not a first-time college student? There are multiple technical and free electives to allow transfer students to fit into the flow of the program.
