Associate of Science in Industrial Maintenance Technology (AS)

Division: Industry & Technology

This degree prepares students for entry-level employment and/or potential further study in the fields of Industrial Technology/Industrial Maintenance. Students completing this degree will have a foundation for the field of Industrial Technology through the study of electricity, motor controls and programmable motor drives, programmable logic controllers, hydraulics/pneumatics, industrial mechanics, machining, refrigeration and boilers, and various welding methods. Students will acquire skills and abilities in design of electrical circuits, reading and interpreting schematics, encoding programmable devices, and design of facility changes for industrial applications.

Program Outcomes

  • Identify, design, and troubleshoot an industrial electrical circuit with a multi-meter to include motor control and building power distribution.
  • Read a print, repair and maintain the mechanical components of hydraulic and pneumatic circuits found in industrial machines to like new condition.
  • Design, program, and troubleshoot both programmable logic controllers (PLC), and variable frequency drives (VFD). This is accomplished in single phase and three phase circuits.
  • Weld in three modes: MIG, STICK, and TIG to industrial maintenance standards.
  • Have additional entry level job skills in: boilers, refrigeration and power distribution.

Career Opportunities

Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be prepared for careers or employment in the following fields: industrial maintenance technician, industrial machine operator, industrial electrician, corrections facilities maintenance, hospital engineer, and food service machine technician.


This degree is not designed for transfer; however, the courses included in this degree may be transferable and apply to other degrees designed for transfer.
