The Industrial Mechanics program is designed to prepare students for employment as maintenance technicians in industrial, commercial and manufacturing facilities.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the outlook for industrial mechanics is growing faster than average. Most industrial mechanics are employed full time during regular business hours. However, mechanics may be on call during the night or weekends.

Beginning industrial mechanics can expect to make between $14 and $16 per hour, while experienced industrial mechanics can make $22 per hour and higher.

The curriculum includes hands-on training in troubleshooting and repair of electrical, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic and pump systems. Training in programmable logic controllers and the ability to troubleshoot them is also part of the curriculum.  The Industrial Mechanics program, when completed, provides well qualified potential employees that are in high demand.
