GRCC Program:

The Industrial Maintenance Technology program prepares students to install, adjust, troubleshoot, and repair a variety of industrial machinery used in manufacturing settings. Technicians may work in factories that manufacture, finish, or assemble many different types of products.

Students study the basic operations common to production equipment used in industry today. Electricity and electronics are emphasized because most modern manufacturing equipment is electrically powered. Pneumatics, hydraulics, and mechanical power are also covered.

This highly skilled trade offers many employment opportunities. In the Grand Rapids area, thousands of manufacturing companies require maintenance personnel. Since each production facility has different needs, the program allows students to select technical electives specific to a particular production area. Students entering this program should have at least a 10th grade reading level and a 9th grade algebra level.
