Industrial Maintenance, A.A.S.

Industrial maintenance requires people employed in the field to be trained in a variety of areas, including welding, electricity, HVAC, gasoline or diesel engines, and generators. Often, the needs will change due to growth in a company or the expansion of services provided. This degree option will allow a student to choose from numerous courses to custom build a program that will fit the needs of an employer. It will also allow students employed in an industrial maintenance position to broaden their skill areas and achieve an associate of applied science degree.
