Industrial Mechanics

Industrial Mechanics introduces students to a wide range of skills used by Industrial Machinery Technicians to keep sophisticated machinery running smoothly. They may maintain and/or repair machinery in factories. They must be able to detect minor problems and correct them before they become major problems. After diagnosing the problem, the equipment may need to be disassembled to repair or replace the part. With the increase in technology, technicians need electronic and computer skills.  
Students will learn to 
  • Repair, troubleshoot, and maintain all types of industrial equipment
  • Diagnose and repair heating, ventilation and cooling systems with the same equipment and technology as industry leaders
  • Fabricate materials for new and replaceable parts
 The Industrial Mechanics program is part of Vantage RAMTEC.
