The industrial automation maintenance program focuses on the maintenance of electrical, mechanical and fluid power equipment. Students in this program will develop their skills in maintenance and troubleshooting of electrical, pneumatic, mechanical, programmable logic controllers, variable frequency drives and more.
Many manufacturing companies across the country no longer employ segregated trades (electrician, millwright, machinist, etc.) Instead, they are moving to a multi-craft classification that will perform electrical, mechanics, machining, welding, etc. Therefore, positions for general maintenance and industrial maintenance are currently in great demand.
