Industrial Electronics Technician
Technical Diploma - 27 credits
Industrial electronics technicians work closely with engineers and electromechanical technicians to perform basic installation, maintenance, and repair activities for industrial electronic and mechanical equipment. This technical diploma will teach students industrial safety practices to include lockout/tag out, isolate faults, test fuses, wire motors, understand, and apply electrical principles to solve failures in the field. Students integrate these concepts with hydraulic, pneumatic, and mechanical systems. An introduction of programmable logic controllers help students develop entry-level skills in manufacturing.
