Bachelor of Applied Technology in Industrial Management: Generalist

The mission for the Bachelor of Applied Technology program at Brazosport College is to educate, train, and develop successful business leaders and managers who are prepared to utilize technology and leadership skills to the competitive advantage of their enterprise. This program builds upon a general education core, and other courses completed in the freshman and sophomore years. Due to the nature of the Bachelor of Applied technology degree, a combination of “academic” and “workforce/technical” classes can be applied to the lower-division requirements. While the upper-division requirements remain the same, a student’s specialty in their lower-division hours allows them to show their knowledge and expertise in a particular field of study.  The program is designed to add general management and business skills for someone with a specialized coursework so they can better achieve their long-term career goals. Students who didn’t specialize in a technical area and earned an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science may select the Generalist specialty of the BAT degree.  The breadth of the coursework enables students to lead and manage by utilizing a wide variety of business, finance, technology, and people management skills.

The upper-division classes are offered online and do not require attendance on campus. Industrial Management courses are delivered in combination of 8-week terms and 16-week semesters allowing students five opportunities to begin coursework throughout the year as well as the ability to focus more on individual courses.  Faculty members bring industry experience to the classes as well as their excellent educational credentials. Students from a wide variety of backgrounds participate in the program bringing the diversity of their experiences to the course discussions.

Finally, we offer the country’s first program that allows eligible seniors to take up to 12 credit hours of graduate coursework from a partnering university which is applied towards your undergraduate degree requirements and provides you with up to a one-year head start on your graduate studies. The graduate programs make their curricula available entirely online.
