Individual Technical Studies
Learn More >
With the growth of employment opportunities in small to mid-sized firms, employees are taking on multiple tasks and roles that cut across traditional occupational categories. As jobs change and new occupations emerge, workers need skills and knowledge drawn from a variety of disciplines to be productive and successful in today’s workplace. The Individual Technical Studies Program allows students to combine curriculum to create a set of skills and job competencies that are needed for a unique or specialized job in business or industry.
It will be each student’s responsibility to develop career goals, working with an occupational advisor from the business or industry in which employment is anticipated. This program enables students to select courses from two or more major areas of study and create an Individualized Technical Studies Associate Degree. It will be the role of the Southwest Wisconsin Technical College Individualized Technical Studies Committee to give guidance in this process and to give final approval to the educational plan.
Since this is an individualized program, time of completion is dependent on course selection, course availability, and your individual schedule.
This program will be designed for each individual student. Career opportunities will depend on the courses that are selected to meet the student’s career goals. It is anticipated that a student will design a program plan that will meet the requirements of a particular career area.
