The Industrial Maintenance/Mechatronics Technology Program (IMM) is designed and managed to produce highly skilled individuals in the areas of mechanical and electrical industrial machinery repair. The program consists of Mechanical Training, to include numerous types of power transmission techniques, belt drive systems, chain drives, alignment methods, and also coupling methods. Students are trained in pneumatic and hydraulic symbology, operation and application. Student training includes basic electrical motor control, sensors, motor drives, AC and DC motor theory and operation and troubleshooting. The program ends with an extensive training period of Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) training, to include both programming and troubleshooting. As part of the IMM program training, students are exposed to a considerable amount of math.
