Program Summary

***THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER ADMITTING STUDENTS INTO THE INDUSTRIAL INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) SUBPLAN. LAST ADMISSION TERM IS SUMMER 2022 (0605) FOR THIS SUBPLAN*** (11/23/2021) The Production Systems Management AS (PROSYS-AS) program is a technical degree that combines aspects of management and supervision along with technical skills. This degree will honor SPC’s long-standing articulation with Pinellas Technical College’s (PTC) technical programs. The program consists of four subplans: Continuous Improvement Management (TQM), Control Systems (CSYS), and Articulations (ART). The Continuous Improvement Management (TQM) subplan includes the Lean Six-Sigma Green Belt Certificate and will prepare students for positions in quality control and quality management. These positions continue to be in demand as manufacturing production increases. The Control Systems (CSYS) subplan will meet the increasing demand for supervisors who can work with automation, sensors, PLCs, and robotics. The Articulations (ART) subplan includes Pinellas Technical College programs that range from 12-24 credits. Students who articulate programs that are less than 24 credits will need to take the remaining credits from a set list of classes that include technical courses from the remaining three subplans.
