The Industrial Systems program leads to the Associate of Applied Science degree. This program is designed to: (1) prepare students for jobs in the use and maintenance of common electrical and electronic instruments along with industrial machines and equipment, and (2) enhance the technical skills and job-related knowledge of persons who are currently employed in the industrial field or anticipating a career in a related field.

Courses in general areas related to electronics and maintenance for industry are combined with general education courses to provide a firm foundation in basic electronics, math, and writing skills. Instruction also includes power distribution, programmable logic controllers, hydraulic power, welding, and basic machining. Emphasis is placed on troubleshooting skills and preventive maintenance techniques.
