Industrial Maintenance Technology
The Industrial Maintenance Technology program prepares students for a broad range of industrial maintenance careers using industry-guided curriculum combined with practical hands-on labs.
First year studies include hand & power tools, precision measurement, fasteners, mechanical drawings, machine components, electrical circuits & prints, mechanical power transmission, machining, piping, robotics, rigging, pneumatics & hydraulics.
During the second year, students learn pumps & compressors, PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers), electric motors & transformers, electric motor controls, and troubleshooting industrial maintenance equipment.
Students gain experience and skills in many industrial subjects so they enter industry as a multi-craft, skilled-trades professional.
Students learn to think critically and apply their knowledge to solve problems on the plant & factory floor. Students learn employability skills & how to successfully work in teams.
This program produces what today’s industry requires: a college educated multi-skilled professional to successfully tackle the 21st century industrial environment.
Students have the option of an alternate 2nd year emphasis in Advanced Manufacturing Technology. This encompasses computer-integrated manufacturing & automation, and Industry 4.0/IIoT (The Industrial Internet of Things).
TJC has worked with leaders from Tyler Pipe, Trane/Ingersoll-Rand, Sanderson Farms, Nestle, Target, Eastman Chemical and more to develop a curriculum so students can go directly into the workforce after graduating.
