"My time at UNK was quite pleasant. I never felt that my money was being wasted while going to school. It is a good value education. My major, Industrial Technology, did well to prepare me for a career in industrial manufacturing. The Industrial Technology major covers how the industry functions as a whole and does not limit the coursework to a specific facet of the field. The major touches on communication, wholesale distribution, management, and some production processes. I feel it was a valuable educational experience to see the industry from a big picture view."
