Mission

The mission of the Industrial Sciences and Technology Program is to provide an educational program designed to provide an educational experience in the areas of management, leadership and technology for students to prepare to meet industry challenges for the 21st century.

Academic Programs

The program offers a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Industrial Technology with programs in the following areas:

Highlights

The Industrial Sciences and Technology Program offers courses in three different facilities. The Industrial Technology Building, located on Avenue M, provides students with hands-on experiences in drafting, water systems, and electrical systems, as well as metal, wood and concrete construction for residential and commercial structures. The computer-aided drafting lab (32 stations), housed in Room 220 in the Farrington building, provides students with experiences with several design programs. The electricity and electronics courses are offered in the Electronics Laboratory in Room 201 in the Thomason Building.

Career Opportunities

Technology students learn to draw upon the principles of management, physical sciences, technology of industry, liberal arts and basic engineering for the solution of problems involving industrial products, services, materials and processes, and the supervision and management of personnel.

Suggested Minors

Industrial Technology students typically choose minors from program areas within the department (see Minor area), while others will select from the College of Business Administration such as General Business Administration, Management, Marketing, etc. They also choose minors in Agricultural Mechanization, Computer Sciences, Criminal Justice and many others. These are typical minors; however, students should choose a minor that best suits their needs and interests.

Student Organizations

Internships

The internship in industrial technology is intended to provide experience-based learning opportunities for students in their respective discipline of study. Students generally seek internship experience at the end of their sophomore or junior year. The course identifi ed for internship credit in industrial technology is IT 490 - Directed Studies. Internships may be arranged through student contact with providers or through departmental faculty and staff announcements and postings. All internships must receive departmental approval through application prior to the initiation of the internship. Maximum credit for internship is six (6) credit hours.

Scholarships

 

The Department of Technology at Sam Houston State University was established as a department in 1912 to prepare manual arts teachers. The department still offers a teaching option; however, the curriculum is primarily oriented to providing educational foundations for those people interested in employment in technical or professional positions in industry.

Upon passage of the Smith-Hughs Act in 1917 Sam Houston State was one of the first universities in the country and the first west of the Mississippi River authorized to train Vocational Agriculture and Industrial Technology teachers.  Preparing teachers for Secondary Agri-Science and Industrial Technology programs continues to ba a major focus of the department.  However, in the 1950's, the Department began offering a variety of other academic specialties.

 

Today Industrial Sciences is a part of the Department of Agricultural and Industrial Sciences.  The department offers degrees in Agriculture, Agricultural Business, Horticulture and Crop Science, Animal Science, Agricultural Engineering Technology, Industrial Technology, Construction Management, Industrial Safety Management, Industrial Design and Development and Electronics. Students in any specialization may seek Secondary Teacher Certification. Additional undergraduate curricula are offered in Animal Science / Wildlife Ecology, Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Equine.  Furthermore the Department serves as the academic advisement center for students interested in the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree.


There are currently 1100+ students enrolled in Agricultural and Industrial Sciences at SHSU.  Enrollment in the program has grown by over 50% during the past 10 years. Career opportunities in agriculture are abundant and diverse.  United States Department of Agriculture and Department of Commerce research predicts that the job opportunities will be abundant during the next decade for new graduates in the food, fiber, natural resources and ancillary industries, as well as in business and industry, construction, design, technology, banking, and a variety of public agencies.  There are literally hundreds of possible career opportunities for those graduating with a degree in agricultural and industrial sciences. Many graduates from SHSU seek additional formal education through pursuit of masters and doctoral degrees.

For certification purposes the minor is considered to be Secondary Education. No other minor is required, but if an additional teaching field is desired, the student must meet the requirements of that teaching field. For the degree of Bachelor of Science and a teaching certificate with an integrated teaching field in technology, the student must complete a minimum of 48 semester hours in Industrial Technology and 21 semester hours in Secondary Education. The courses listed above are required of all students who are majoring in Industrial Technology and seeking a teaching certificate. The student should be advised by the Industrial Sciences and Technology teacher educator. Contact the advisor at (936) 294-1216, or seek advisement for Industrial Sciences at the SAM Center.

Degrees require a minimum of 120 hours with 42 advanced hours (3000-level and 4000-level courses).  Some degrees require additional hours.  All students are required to complete at least six writing-enhanced courses accumulating a minimum of 18 semester hours towards degree completion.  Six of the hours must come from the student’s major field of study.  SHSU students MUST complete ENGL 1301, ENGL 1302, Core Composite Area 2, and one-half of Composite Area 3 prior to enrollment in any upper-level class.  In general, the Bachelor of Arts degree requires 8 hours of lab science and the Bachelor of Science degree requires 16 hours of lab science.  Applicants for the Bachelor of Arts degree should consult their major department web page for foreign language requirements.  Many colleges and programs have additional prerequisites for upper-level classes.

Prior to enrolling in core classes, students are encouraged to review specific degree requirements for their major.  Selection of major-specified core courses may reduce the total number of hours required for graduation.

Students are encouraged to select the university catalog offering them the most advantages with respect to degree completion.  The respective university and/or college catalog selected for graduation determines final degree requirements.
