The Department of Engineering Technology and Management at Ohio University has a long and rich history of preparing graduates for careers in industry. Ohio University's first Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT) was awarded in 1956, although industrial technology course offerings at Ohio University stretch as far back as 1904. The degree has been fully accredited by The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering since 1979.
We have recently released a history booklet about the department: "Building on Success: The Past and the Present of Industrial Technology at Ohio University." - download PDF.
