The Department of Instructional Systems and Workforce Development prepares students with marketable technology skills to pursue careers in a variety of professional settings, including K-12 schools, higher education, and an array of industry and business environments. The department offers three undergraduate bachelor’s degrees, Master of Science in Technology, Master of Science in Instructional Technology, Educational Specialist, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Additionally, pre-service teachers and licensed teachers may add additional endorsements in Business Technology (411), Information and Communication I and II (981, 982), Technology Foundations (984), STEM (983), and Career Pathway Experience (917). They may also earn the IC3 certification and online learning certifications. 

Students may also complete the Veterans' Certificate Program that consists of 15 semester hours of coursework designed for anyone at any level who would like to serve veterans. Two minors consisting of 18 hours are also offered to students interested in either industrial technology or information technology services.

Business Technology Education Major (BTE)

Major Advisor: Pamela Scott-Bracey, 258 IED Building

Upon program completion, the Business Technology Education (BTE) graduates will receive 10 teaching endorsements and be qualified to teach all courses of the Mississippi Business Management Framework and the Business Technology Framework as well as Economics, Information and Communication Technology I and II, Technology Foundations, and Career Pathway Experiences. Graduates may teach at middle schools, high schools, and career and technology centers. Graduates acquire a national certification in computer literacy as well as certification to teach online. The BTE degree is offered as a face-to-face program and a distance learning degree. Students may choose to add a minor in business administration and add the STEM endorsement.

Licensure areas with Mississippi Department of Education licensure number are as follows:

  • 193 Economics
  • 405 Business Management (formerly 105 Business Education)
  • 411 Business Technology (formerly 111 Computer Applications)

The MSU Bulletin is not the final source of information; departmental advisement is important for course sequence and selection. Students should get advisement and approval from their MSU advisors for course scheduling.

Information Technology Services Major (ITS) non-teaching

Major Advisors: Vicki Keel, 114; Kun Huang, 261; Sang Joon Lee, 103; Wei-Chieh Yu, 102 IED Building

This curriculum is designed to prepare students for the use of computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and hardware, development and implementation of information technology end-user support, information technology project management, and technology training.

By completing the business requirements for the ITS degree, students may be eligible to receive a minor in Business Administration from the College of Business. ITS majors interested in a minor in business administration should contact an academic coordinator in room 106 McCool Hall.

The MSU Bulletin is not the final source of information; department advisement is critically important for course sequence and selection. Students should always get advisement and approval from their MSU advisor for course scheduling.

Industrial Technology Major (INDT) non-teaching

Major Advisors: John Wyatt, Mickey Giordano, and Mervin Mize
Office: 110 IED Building

The industrial education curriculum is designed for students who want to prepare for employment leading to supervisory and management positions in the production, automation, maintenance, or logistics areas of industry. The role of the Industrial Technology graduate is that of a facilitator of ideas from senior management to the production floor. Successful completion of the four-year curriculum would provide an excellent background in science, mathematics, design and human relations. This is coupled with the practical use of both manual and automated machinery and the associated tools, as well as knowledge of industrial manufacturing processes, materials and logistics.

To this extent the curriculum is divided into three concentrations:

  • Industrial Automation
  • Industrial Distribution
  • Manufacturing & Maintenance Management

These concentrations are designed to give students a specialization that they can take into the workforce and build upon throughout their industrial career. Graduates should quickly become proficient in both the supervisory and administrative roles of dealing with personnel, and depending upon the concentration selected, the graduate should become adept in the various aspects of the manufacture, distribution and automation of industrial products and processes. Employment opportunities are excellent for this degree.

The MSU Bulletin is not the final source of information. Departmental advisement is critically important for the course sequence and selection. Students should always get advisement and approval from their MSU advisor for course scheduling.

Upper division courses (3000 level and up) must be taken at a senior college or university. See a faculty advisor for prerequisites and proper course sequence.

NOTE: This curriculum lends itself well to a minor in Business Administration or Marketing.
