What is the program about?

The Bachelor of Applied Science Integrated Systems Technician program is ideally suited to address present and future needs in manufacturing and other industries. The program focuses on training individuals in technologies related to connected devices, particularly in industrial settings. Graduates will gain the technical and robotic skills needed to effectively integrate new devices into an existing technology infrastructure, and just as critically, will gain the skills to do so in a secure way (Cyber). The program is especially well-suited to those interested in pursuing careers as mechatronics engineering technologists, who use their combined computer science and engineering skills to work with smart technologies such as robots and manufacturing equipment. The Integrated Systems Technician will be able to understand and service/maintain Advanced Manufacturing, High Tech Warehousing, Smart Consumer Devices, Household Appliances, Automotive computer systems, and Medical Devices through the process of automation and data acquisition, providing cybersecurity, movement of data to the cloud, provide data analytics/visualization and eventually to support the business systems where intelligent decisions can be made.

Program Outcomes

  • Configure client, server, and IoT technologies, using a variety of operating systems, to existing networked environment ensuring the highest possible degree of security.
  • Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and nontechnical environments.
  • Design basic solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline.
  • Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results.
  • Apply programming, database, and operating systems skills to solve industrial systems, cyber security, and information technology problems.

Career Opportunities

Careers this degree serves include consumer markets, medical devices, defense industry, industrial high tech manufacturing automation & warehousing/logistics, and the robotics industry. Multiple regional employers have indicated that this is a growing need for them as they deploy more interconnected devices in advanced manufacturing, warehousing, and production. Per EMSI, the number of monthly postings seeking applicants with expertise in the greater Dayton area has grown steadily and rapidly, from 35 in September of 2016 to 249 in May of 2021. Cyber technician specializing in the micro-controller consumer markets of automotive, appliances, medical devices, defense industry, industrial high tech manufacturing automation & warehousing/logistics, and the robotics industry. Graduates will be able to work in all areas having to do with the Internet-of-Things, from programming to engineering hardware installations, networking, security, troubleshooting and repair. 60 percent of these regionally posted IOT jobs require a bachelor's degree.
