Measurement & Maintenance Technician
Industrial Maintenance Technicians install, repair and maintain commercial or industrial machinery in buildings, a plant, or a manufacturing setting. These technicians ensure the operation of machinery and mechanical equipment by completing preventive maintenance requirements and troubleshooting malfunctions on engines, motors, pneumatic tools, conveyor systems, and production machines. Measurement technicians work with equipment that measures the volumes, pressures, flow rates and related characteristics of gases and liquids. Typically, they are employed in a gas or oil company, or in one that deals with thermo-hydraulic machines and apparatus. They may also work in a laboratory or research facility that uses gases and various equipment and containers for them. Instrumentation technicians monitor atmospheric and environmental changes in industrial areas and buildings. They use a variety of instruments and devices to record and report these changes.
The Measurement and Maintenance Technician program offers a sequence of courses that are designed to prepare individuals for employment in various manufacturing environments. This course includes face-to-face instruction and significant amounts of lab and hands-on experiences.
