Lean Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Option

Program Description

The Connecticut College of Technology Pathways program allows students to complete an associate in science degree program in Technology Studies and continue on to complete a bachelor of science degree in Industrial Technology with a focus in Technology Management at Central Connecticut State University’s School of Engineering Science and Technology. The curriculum offers a broad range of studies and topics in: mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering drawing and computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), electronic engineering technologies, mechanical engineering technologies, machine technologies, and other courses in special areas of technology. The program also includes a solid core of courses in general education. Successful completion of the program allows students to enter their junior year at Central Connecticut State University.

The Lean Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Option, Technology Studies associate degree program prepares students to work in the 21st century world of Lean Manufacturing and supply chain management. Companies are now employing these techniques to reduce waste, cut costs and compete globally.

Consultation with a faculty advisor is strongly recommended.

Placement testing will determine the sequencing of courses. Additional courses may be required. Note: To complete the degree in two years, students are advised to complete the courses in the sequence listed beginning in the fall semester.
