Ivy Tech’s Integrated Technology Education Program (ITEP) will expand opportunities at Ivy Tech for high school students to gain industry skills and valuable credentials. ITEP is a career pathway program in industrial technology developed in partnership with high schools and career centers, as well as local industry.
In April 2014, Ivy Tech Community College in Kokomo was one of 24 grantees across the United States to receive funding to participate in The Youth CareerConnect Grant doleta.gov/ycc/ awarded by the Department of Labor. This grant focuses on the workforce skills gaps by developing training programs for youth before they graduate from high school. The amount awarded to the Ivy Tech Kokomo region was $3.2 million to provide 11th grade students in our local high schools and career centers the opportunity to begin a career pathway toward an associate degree during their last two years in high school in one of eight industrial technology/advanced manufacturing fields including:
- Industrial Automation
- Industrial Electrical
- Industrial Mechanical
- Logistics and Supply Chain
- Machine Tool
Information on all of these programs and degrees can be found here!
