Industrial Systems Technology AAS

Industrial Systems Technology AAS (Major Code: IS13)

Program Description

The Industrial Systems Technology program is intended to provide the opportunity for students to explore a career in industrial systems technology at the professional level. The degree program teaches skills in Industrial Systems Technology providing background skills in several areas of industrial maintenance including electronics, industrial wiring, motors, controls, PLCs, instrumentation, fluid power, mechanical, pumps and piping, and computers.

Program graduates will receive an Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Systems Technology, qualifying them as industrial system maintenance personnel, technicians, electricians, millwrights, and other related jobs that are charged with inspecting, maintaining, troubleshooting, and repairing commercial and industrial mechanical and electrical systems. These systems are found in manufacturing applications, assembly lines, and production facilities. The complex machinery found in each of these situations need technicians to install, service, troubleshoot, maintain, and repair the machinery in order for the companies to maintain a high level of productivity. Occupational prospects will vary by specialty and location, as employment is influenced by economic conditions. In general, opportunities will be best for individuals with an associate degree or other postsecondary training in Industrial Systems Technology.
