How to Use this Catalog 

THIS CATALOG IS EASY TO USE 

Just take a minute to flip through it. You'll see right 
away that it isn't too hard to find what you're looking 
for. When in doubt, use the table of contents in the front 
or the index in the back. 

IT HAS SIX SECTIONS 

General Information and College Services - This 
section has basic information about the College and its 
campuses. It includes College history, campus addresses, 
and other important information such as financial aid, 
student rights, grading systems, and so on. Get to know 
this section well. 

Degree Programs and Requirements - Use this sec- 
tion to find out which classes to take to earn the degree 
or certificate you want. It's organized by "program" (such 
as business administration or industrial technology), 
and then by "concentration" (such as youth services). You 
also use this section to find out what degrees are 
offered in a certain field and how many course credits 
you need to complete them. It also tells how many cred- 
its you'll earn for each course. 

Course Descriptions - After you look up the classes 
you need in Section 2, you'll probably want to know 
what they're all about. Go to this easy-to-use section for 
that. Simply find the course number (see sample page 
at right) in the Program Descriptions section ( Section 2) 
and then look it up in the Course Descriptions section 
(Section 3). Everything in Section 3 is in alphabetical 
order. 

Program Availability - Ivy Tech offers many educa- 
tional programs and degrees, but not all programs and 
degrees are offered at all 23 campuses.This section is 
designed to help you quickly find which programs are 
available at the Ivy Tech campus that interests you. 

Faculty and Staff -This section is a list of full-time 
faculty and their educational backgrounds. 



Accreditations and Memberships - This section 
shows which organizations and agencies accredit Ivy 
Tech Community College, its campuses, and programs. 

WATCH FOR SYMBOLS AND TERMS. 

A degree or certificate program requires different types 
of courses.There are four terms that describe course 
types:"General Education, ""Professional/Technical," 
"Concentration," and "Regionally Determined." Most 
degrees or certificates require some courses of each 
type. Other terms you'll see are: 

Elective- The term "elective" means you can choose 
the class you want from those offered on your campus. 
These are marked with a"*". 
Capstone Course- This type of course includes a 
component that assesses certain skills that will be 
expected of you as a graduate in the workforce. The 
assessment typically involves a written assignment. 
These are marked with a " A " 
Regionally Determined -This means your campus 
decides which classes you must take to complete the 
degree. In cases where you see courses marked with 
the symbol "**"it means that one of two courses is 
required and your campus decides which. In other 
cases, your campus determines which courses are 
required to fulfill the degree, based primarily on 
needs of local business and industry. 

Your academic advisor can tell you which classes are 
required.

Program Description 

The Engineering Technology program will educate skilled 
technicians who will work with engineers and other tech- 
nicians to design, implement, and support engineering 
processes. Activities such as collecting, analyzing.and inter- 
preting data and troubleshooting complex integrated sys- 
tems will be fundamental concepts in all coursework. As 
firms continue to seek new means of reducing costs and 
increasing productivity, demand for engineering techni- 
cians to analyze and improve production processes should 
increase. Students will develop basic and advanced skills 
appropriate to the application of science, technology, engi- 
neering, and math that will enable graduates to enter the 
workforce and/or transfer to a four-year engineering tech- 
nology program.Graduates can continue theireducation at 
Purdue University Statewide programs.

Imaging Sciences 

Program Description 

The Imaging Science Program offers degrees for radiolo- 
gy and ultrasound. The radiologic technologist prepares 
and positions patients for exams and operates x-ray 
equipment. Sonographers use ultrasound for diagnostic 
procedures for obstetrics, abdomen, and other 
Imaging Science graduates can work in hospitals, physi- 
cians' offices, clinics, federal and state health agencies, 
and certain educational institutions. The Associate of 
Science program includes courses in the following areas: 
technique, exposure, positioning, protection, physics, 
cross-section anatomy, patient care and ethics. Qinical 
practice and supplemental instruction are provided in 
accredited hospitals and clinics. Students graduating 
from the Imaging Sciences program participate in evalu- 
ations of competency in general and technical educa- 
tion. Upon completion of program requirements, gradu- 
ates are eligible to take the National Registry 
Examination. 

Graduates of the imaging Sciences program may seek 
immediate employment or transfer and complete a bac- 
calaureate degree in Imaging Sciences. Articulated 
transfer opportunities are available with IUPUI, IUK, and 
University of Southern Indiana.Students are encouraged 
to review these options with their advisors.

Respiratory Care 

Program Description 

Respiratory therapists are health care specialists who 
provide care for patients with breathing disorders. Care 
includes assessment, evaluation, and treatment of 
patients ranging in age from premature infants to the 
elderly. Therapists also work with adults who have 
chronic lung problems, such as asthma or emphysema. 
As a respiratory therapist, you must possess good com- 
munication skills. You will work side by side with physi- 
cians, nurses and other health care providers in caring 
for patients with lung disorders. As part of the health 
care team, you help with interviewing patients, making 
recommendations to physicians to change therapy 
based on your assessments, and providing patient and 
family education about lung disease.

Sustainable Energy 

Program Description 

Energy is a fundamental requirement for the sustenance 
of life, playing key roles in human ecology and in the 
development of the earths' flora and fauna. Due to con- 
tinued growth in human population, with concomitant 
greater growth in energy demand, severe problems in the 
sustainability of needed energy resources could become 
acute. The Sustainable Energy program will examine the 
growth of energy consumption, the sustainability of 
energy supply, the long-term energy resources available, 
and the resulting environmental impacts caused on glob- 
al and local scales. The program is designed to provide a 
solid foundation in the fundamental design/installation 
techniques required to work with renewable 
technologies. 

Sample Careers 

Operate and maintain wind turbines, install photovoltaic and 
geothermal systems, design and maintain equipment across 
the industry

Transportation, Distribution and Logistics 



Program Description 

Transportation and logistics is a major industry in 
Indiana. Many companies now depend on their ability to 
accurately move goods around the world. Ivy Tech 
Community College's Transportation, Distribution and 
Logistics program prepares a workforce that meets this 
demand. Indiana's central location and access to nation- 
al and world markets has attracted a large increase in the 
companies in the transportation, distribution and logis- 
tics arena. 

The logistics and transportation field uses high technolo- 
gy and information systems to track goods and increase 
efficiencies. There are many opportunities for careers in 
transportation and logistics management using the latest 
technologies in supply management, distribution sys- 
tems, and inter-modal transportation.
