About INTM

Illinois Institute of Technology offers outstanding undergraduate and graduate programs, and a Certificate in Industrial Technology and Management (INTM).  With five specializations tailored for specific industrial sectors, INTM aims to provide a hands-on, reality-based approach to education.  Students apply what they learn in class to solve real industrial management problems, using innovative systems and production methods.  The Industrial Technology and Management (INTM) program prepares you to be a leader in industry—able to address operational challenges using best practices and technologies. 

INTM professional bachelor’s (Bac in Industrial Technology and Management-BINTM) and master’s (Masters in Industrial Technology and Operations-MITO) degrees will build upon your existing skills, improve your managerial capabilities, and expand your career opportunities. 

The BINTM program is a transfer program for students with two years of technical study at a community college, an accredited apprenticeship or training program, or a four-year university.
