Fort Wayne, Ind.—The College of Professional Studies will host an informational open house from noon to 4:30 p.m. December 1 for prospective students interested in the industrial and manufacturing engineering (IME) degree program in Warsaw or the master’s degree in engineering management (MSE) online.
Students interested in the IME bachelor’s degree can begin the program in February or in April. Courses for the April start date will be offered during the day to better serve students who work second or third shift. Most courses at the Warsaw location are held in the evening or on weekends.
The IME degree focuses on efficient manufacturing operations and explores topics such as simulation, lean manufacturing, quality management, safety and environmental issues. The program combines technical and managerial skills and includes courses in accounting, management and marketing.
The Warsaw location is one of four Indiana Tech campuses that offer the IME program, and Indiana Tech is the only university in the state providing an engineering degree in an accelerated format.
The accelerated degree program makes it possible for busy adults to fit college into their lifestyles. Courses meet once or twice a week for five-week sessions. This allows students to attend full-time while balancing other commitments and responsibilities.
The online Master of Science in Engineering Management will begin in May. It also is offered in an accelerated format with each course spanning six weeks. In the online program students can access the material at their convenience within specified start and end dates for each course.
The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSE) explores the issues that will face engineers in a variety of fields as they assume more managerial responsibilities. The program uses the expertise gained through an undergraduate degree in engineering or a related field as a base for further education. The course work will include topics such as environmental health and safety, project management, enterprise resource planning, lean manufacturing, managerial economics, and financial management.
In addition to Warsaw and the main campus in Fort Wayne, the College of Professional Studies also has locations in Elkhart, Fishers, Greenwood, Huntington, Indianapolis, Kendallville, Mishawaka, Munster, New Albany and Plainfield.
Indiana Tech is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
