Industrial Systems Technology (AAS) A50240BR
The Industrial Systems Technology curriculum is designed to prepare or upgrade individuals to safely service, maintain, repair, or install equipment. Instruction includes theory and skill training needed for inspecting, testing, troubleshooting, and diagnosing industrial systems.
Students will learn multi-craft technical skills in print reading, mechanical systems maintenance, electricity, hydraulics/ pneumatics, welding, machining or fabrication, and includes various diagnostic and repair procedures. 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.
Admission Requirements and Special Conditions
A high school diploma (or equivalent), satisfactory scores on college placement tests (or equivalent) and a minimum GPA in English and mathematics are required. If students have deficiencies in English and/or mathematics, RCC offers pre-college courses to prepare students for the Industrial Systems Technology curriculum.
This is not a Transfer Program.
The BR, or Bridge program is intended for students who may be interested in pursuing a four-year degree in this field. THIS IS NOT A TRANSFER PROGRAM. However, the selection of Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC) courses will reduce the number of additional courses required for admission to the four-year institution. Before selecting this program, contact the four-year institution(s) in which you are interested to verify entrance requirements.
Admission to this program requires prior approval from the Industrial Technology Programs Department Chairperson.
