Industrial Maintenance Technologies (AAT)

Academic Plans, known as programs, include a overview description and a summary of program requirements. You can search the online catalog via the the Academic Plan links on the right for a desired program or a specific course information. 

The degree program will build on the knowledge, skills and abilities developed in the certificate program and will provide student with higher level skills in Machining, Mechatronics and Welding. Students completing this program will be prepared for employment as a maintenance technician within industrial, manufacturing and processing environments.
