Chair’s Message


Jesse Horner Ed. D., Interim Chair

Welcome to the Department of Industrial Technologies (IT) at Texas Southern University. We offer the B.S. degree in Industrial Technology with two program options (Construction Technology and Design Technology). Our aim is to prepare students to become “management-oriented technical professionals not only having the practical skills but the managerial skills to be productive in a high-tech manufacturing environment”.

Our faculty has a great deal of experience and knowledge and continues to stay abreast of the latest trends in the construction and Design fields. The Department has a well-qualified advisory board comprised of technical professionals in several technical fields who assist in improving curricula content as well as helping secure internship opportunities for our students. Many of our graduates have excelled in their respective fields to become CAD operators, technical illustrators, architects, construction foremen, project managers, and business owners. We are committed to providing our students with the best possible learning environment and experiences.
