Industrial Engineering

Designed for engineers who need to expand their knowledge of technical aspects of their profession, Industrial Engineering provides instruction on math and technical fundamentals, plus complex, intensive training in mechanical engineering design, electronic components and circuits, instrumentation and process control systems, and fluid power/power transmission systems applications.

Students must have a high school diploma or GED Equivalency Certificate before enrolling. Along with valuable on-the-job training experience, Industrial Engineering builds knowledge, expertise, and confidence. Trainees will know how to:

  • Identify the basics of basic science, chemistry, and engineering mechanics.
  • Explain how common electronic components function and achieve circuit operations.
  • Learn the basics of microprocessors, what they are comprised of, and how they apply within industry.
  • Describe the principles of automatic process control systems and how the various control instruments function
  • Identify the principles of fluid power and hydraulics, the common types of components, how they operate, and how these systems can be troubleshot and maintained.
  • Explain the principles and components that comprise a mechanical power transmission system, how they operate, and how they can be maintained.
