    Dearl Lampley, dean of the Science, Technology and Math Division at Columbia State recently appeared on WSMV's More at Midday Show to talk about the new Advanced Integrated Industrial Technology (AiiT) program.

Advanced Integrated Industrial Technology (AiiT)

(A.A.S. or technical certificate)


It’s a high-tech world, and Columbia State’s AiiT program is ready to help you get a foot in the door.

“Manufacturing has moved into an era of sophisticated computerized technology,” says Dearl Lampley, dean of the Science, Technology and Math Division. “It requires people who are highly skilled in working with complex synchronized pieces of equipment and can troubleshoot the equipment if anything goes wrong.”

The AiiT program at Columbia State has state-of-the-art, world class training equipment that helps provide students with the skills needed to work with complex synchronized pieces of equipment. The delivery method for the program will consist of online lectures with labs at Northfield by appointment, allowing great scheduling flexibility for employed students.

The AiiT program is limited to 25 students per year. Students complete the regular college admission application but will need to specify that they are interested in the new AiiT program.

The AiiT program is an Associates of Applied Science, which means students should be prepared for the workforce upon completion. All AAS degrees require general education courses (16 for AiiT) with the remaining (44) being in the major field of study.

A Great Place To Start. Invest in Columbia State.
