Program Features

About the Program

Industrial Mechanical Technology, a program that produces graduates known as millwrights or maintenance mechanics, is a two year program where students learn safety, measurements, troubleshooting, repair procedures and the use of hand and power tools. The program also covers hydraulics, pneumatics, lubrication systems, pumps, conveyors, rigging, bearings, and welding.

Helpful Background

All applicants are expected to have high school diplomas or GEDs. Courses in industrial arts, math, science and mechanical drawing are very helpful. Hard toed boots, hard hats (helmets), and safety glasses will be required.

Career Opportunities

Job placement for Industrial Mechanical Technology students has traditionally been very high, as companies lose money when equipment is not running and production is impacted. Qualified mechanics/millwrights find work repairing both plant and weld equipment. A demand exists for mechanics/millwrights in a variety of manufacturing and processing facilities such as hardboard plants, paper companies, food processing plants, and mining companies. Graduates have also found employment with heavy equipment dealers, contractors, rail maintenance crews, and in specialty areas involving hydraulics, parts distribution, solar energy, logging, pumps, conveyors, rigging, and bearings.
