The Industrial Systems Technology curriculum is designed to prepare or upgrade individuals to safely service, maintain, repair, or install equipment.
CCC&TI offers several different educational programs in this area:
In the Machining Processes Track, students learn machining operations of the metal working industry. They focus on the concepts and capabilities of computer numerical control machine tools and study the programming, setup, and operation of a CNC milling and turning center.
Mechatronics combines electrical, mechanical, computer, and industrial engineering. Mechatronics teaches students about product design, instrumentation, manufacturing methods, and computer integration in process and device control.
Instruction includes theory and skill training needed for performing the following tasks on industrial systems:
Students will learn multi-craft technical skills in:
Practical application in these industrial systems will be emphasized and additional advanced course work may be offered. Upon completion of this curriculum, graduates should be able to individually, or with a team, safely install, inspect, diagnose, repair, and maintain industrial process and support equipment. Students will also be encouraged to develop their skills as life-long learners.
