This program prepares students in four areas important to maintenance personnel, including communications, mechanical systems, electrical systems, and fluid power systems. Students will be prepared for entry-level employment in facility maintenance, service maintenance and/or production maintenance fields.

Employment of industrial machinery repairers is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all occupations as more firms introduce automated production equipment. Qualified applicants should find ample employment opportunities as older workers retire, and employment in industrial machinery repair is not usually affected by seasonal changes in production.
