Industrial Systems Technology

Curriculum Description

The Industrial Systems Technology curriculum is designed to prepare or upgrade individuals to safely service, maintain, repair or install equipment. Instruction includes theory and skill training needed for inspecting, testing, troubleshooting and diagnosing industrial systems.

Students will learn multi-craft technical skills in blueprint reading, mechanical systems maintenance, electricity, hydraulics/pneumatics, welding, machining or fabrication, and includes various diagnostic and repair procedures. Practical application in these industrial systems will be emphasized and additional advanced course work may be offered.

Upon completion of this curriculum, graduates should be able to individually, or with a team, safely install, inspect, diagnose, repair and maintain industrial process and support equipment. Students will also be encouraged to develop their skills as life-long learners.

The following represents one way in which the program of study can be completed. Students who aren’t able to follow this plan should consult their academic advisor to be sure that they take courses in the best order for their success.
