Industrial maintenance is a rapidly changing field. The days of the single-skilled worker are nearing an end. The Industrial Maintenance program was developed between the college and maintenance professionals from the local area to address this trend.
This program is hands-on. Students get experience using industry-standard equipment—equipment they are likely to find on the job.
Skilled technicians are needed to fill the void left by an aging workforce. Multi-disciplined workers are needed to ensure companies can compete in the global marketplace.
A graduate of the A.A.S. program will find that she/he is prepared for the future of maintenance. IMT graduates have knowledge and skills in such areas as:
- Power Transmission, Rotating Equipment & Alignment
- Pipefitting & Rigging
- Pneumatics and Hydraulics
- Industrial Wiring and Troubleshooting
- Computerized Maintenance Systems
- Machine Shop Fundamentals
- Basic Welding Techniques
- Air Conditioning & Refrigeration
