Associate of Applied Science – Concentration in Industrial Maintenance/Multi-Craft

Degree Plan

This program follows a structured schedule, Monday – Friday from 8 AM to 3 PM.

The Industrial Maintenance program allows the student to earn two one-year certificates (Entry and Advanced) as well as the opportunity to earn an associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Industrial Maintenance. The Industrial Maintenance field is a growing career field and the need for the number of Industrial Maintenance craft workers is projected to increase by almost 20% over the next ten years. The Certificates and the AAS degree are valuable assets for an individual when applying for an Industrial Maintenance position with most large to medium companies. The Certificates and AAS degree prove that you have the necessary training, experience, and education for their entry level positions. This gives you an advantage when applying for an open position.
