Applied Science, Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing
Industrial Technology Education programs prepare students for careers and higher education within manufacturing technology, engineering and design, construction technology, transportation technology and communication. Students are provided technical knowledge that emphasizes high standards and quality experiences in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development.
Vision and Mission
Industrial Technology programs will offer Programs of Study, aligned with industry standards. Beginning with a broad-based industry-focused career exploration course at the secondary level, programs will continue with a coherent sequence of courses within a career cluster through post-secondary education. Student attainment of proficiency will be measured through assessments aligned with industry standards, and providing students with industry certification(s).
The Iowa Department of Education will provide technical assistance and resources to assist schools and colleges in accomplishing the stated vision.
