About this program

Modern American manufacturing and industry operate in a highly complicated, high-speed, high-pressure environment requiring skilled workers who have knowledge beyond the rigid confines of individual trade-based maintenance workers of the past. This program prepares students with a foundation in the theory, application and principles of today's manufacturing and industrial environment. This includes the proper installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of mechanical, electrical, electronic, electromechanical and fluid power equipment. In addition, the Industrial Maintenance program introduces students to computerized maintenance management systems, current and emerging predictive/preventive maintenance technologies, and root cause failure analysis. This program emphasizes hands-on learning with realistic labs and equipment. Most of the student's time is spent performing hands-on tasks related to the industry.
