The Individualized Technical Studies program at Moraine Park Technical College allows students with unique and diverse backgrounds to design a program to meet their needs.
The Individualized Technical Studies (ITS) is a flexible program for students with career objectives that can’t be met by existing degree programs at MPTC.
Students in the program work with an occupational mentor of their choosing to set career outcomes, stay on track and create a unique associate degree that combines state approved courses from two or more disciplines. At least 20 credits must be from one discipline.
Students in the Individualized Technical Studies program will base their learning from Career Outcome Statements that they set with their mentor. You may be eligible for credit for prior learning from previous work experience, coursework or military service training.
An occupational mentor must work or have recently worked in the student’s field of choice. They must be familiar with the skills and abilities that the student needs to gain to be successful. The mentor will also help the student choose relevant courses.
