The production management process involves understanding and working with all aspects of production, anticipating every phase and ensuring that products pass smoothly from one stage to the next.  Items progress from initial design to manufacturing and finally to the sales floor.

Hands-On, Industry Experience

The program prepares you to move directly from classroom to career.  At FIT, you gain valuable real-world experience through:

  • Expert faculty with years of professional experience.
  • Internships at top-level companies and class tours of factories
  • Professional mentors and guest lectures by industry leaders

Industry Project

Working in a small group, you'll develop a comprehensive business plan for a manufacturing company that includes: marketing and merchandising, a line plan, sourcing of facilities, production allocations, scheduling, costing, quality specifications, and financial strategies and statements.  The project will include company policies, supporting documentation, and proposed strategies for meeting the project's objectives.

Program Highlights

The program offers two degrees: an Associate in Applied Science and a Bachelor of Science.  All students complete the associate's program in their major area of study and the liberal arts, and may then choose to go on to the two-year bachelor's program.  Highlights include:

  • Advanced computer applications
  • Focus on cost, sourcing, and efficiency
  • Concentrated study in the sewn products manufacturing process
  • Core liberal arts curriculum to develop critical thinking, communication skills, and a global perspective.

Career Opportunities

FIT reports a nearly ninety percent graduate placement rate, and many internships result in full-time offers.

You'll put the skills and knowledge you acquire in the classroom to immediate use with companies such as importer/exporters, software suppliers, and manufacturers of sewn products, home furnishings, and toys.  Our graduates build careers worldwide as:

  • General operation managers
  • Independent business owners
  • Industry consultants
  • Product engineers
  • Production coordinators
  • Technical designers
