Do you like to fix things? Are you a problem solver? If so, Industrial Maintenance Technology could be for you. Every industry needs skilled maintenance technicians and mechanics to repair complex machines such as assembly line conveyor belts, robotic welding arms, hydraulic lifts and so much more. Machinery has changed a lot as technology has advanced. OCTC’s Industrial Maintenance Technology program prepares its graduates to work in factories, hospitals, construction industries and more. In addition to industrial maintenance classes, students in this program take courses in electricity, machine tool and welding. Some add carpentry or construction classes. If you can multitask and you like a challenge, industrial maintenance might be the field for you.
