Association of Technology Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE)

The Bachelor of Science in Technology (B.S.Tech) degree program in Industrial Technology at the University of Idaho is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).

Learning Outcomes and Competencies

The INDT program differs from many other degree programs that are accredited by ATMAE, in that our curriculum focuses on academic knowledge and capabilities, rather than on crafts skills such as welding, metalwork and machine operation. The program’s present general learning outcomes and more specific competencies are as follows:

Learning Outcome

Learning Outcome 1: Our graduates are prepared to design, implement and improve processes and systems in the manufacturing, research and development, service or government sectors.

Competencies: They are able to:

  • Apply theories and principles from mathematics, physical science, and computer applications and information technology to solve practical technology problems.
  • Apply quality, safety, and industrial technology skills in a professional work environment within real world constraints.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in the use of robotics and manufacturing equipment to solve practical technology and engineering problems.
  • Apply the principles of cognitive systems and human performance to perform task analyses and evaluate human-computer/machine interfaces.
  • Interpret, describe, and implement information contained in typical project specifications.

Learning Outcome 2: Our graduates are prepared to succeed in managerial and leadership positions.

Competencies: They are able to:

  • Demonstrate project management skills by applying time value of money, select and implement cost-effective solutions and understand cost-accounting and effective scheduling principles.
