Why choose Ranken for your degree?

In Ranken’s five-semester Industrial Engineering Technology program, students take coursework designed to prepare them to maintain and repair factory equipment and other industrial machinery.

The four-week classes alternate with a four-week internship to provide real-world experience. Students also take general education courses to complete the degree.

Students at Ranken are introduced to concepts through online multimedia training modules, then practice these concepts on shop simulators to gain hands-on experience. After four weeks of training, students move on to the paid internship, to gain a deeper understanding through real-world experience.

Ranken’s blended technical education offers a superior training program, and the opportunity to “earn while you learn.”
