What is Industrial Maintenance Technology?
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 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. If you can multitask and you like a challenge, industrial maintenance might be the field for you.
What are my career choices?
The workplace of today requires the technician to make decisions about the operation and repair of manufacturing systems and to constantly learn and implement new information. You'll be trained to hold positions in factories, hospitals, hotels, etc., where multi-skilled maintenance personnel are needed. The core courses offered in this program will allow the student to advance in new and emerging areas of technology.
