The Industrial Maintenance Technology curriculum is a technical program designed to prepare students for entry-level employment as multi-skilled maintenance technicians. Industrial maintenance technicians are responsible for assembling, installing, and maintaining/repairing machinery used in the manufacturing or industrial environment.


Students receive basic instruction in a wide variety of areas including safety, machinery maintenance and blueprint reading, troubleshooting/service, basic welding and cutting operations, basic machining operations, fundamentals of piping and hydro-testing, and fundamentals of industrial electricity.


Priority enrollment will be given to applicants who score 76 in Reading, a 47 in English and a 41 in Numeric Skills on the COMPASS test, or an ACT minimum overall of 15 with a 15 in Math, and a passing score of 55% on the Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test. A BMCT re-test will be given to these students prior to their registering for their next semester’s classes.
