Process and Maintenance Technology

altThe Process and Maintenance Technology program prepares graduates for entry-level process and maintenance positions in steel and stainless steel manufacturing, chemical and other plant operation related industries. The program provides instruction designed to develop knowledge of the monitoring and controlling principles used in modern industry as well as the technical skills needed to apply these principles.

Mathematics, communications skills, computer, general and industrial-related safety, and science courses are included to provide the broad-based skills and knowledge essential to modern process and maintenance technicians. Specialized hands-on and theory training in the areas of chemistry, instrumentation, maintenance, process operations, and unit operations provides the technical competencies needed in the industry.

Students entering the program may choose to enter under the Steel Production track, the Chemical Process track, or the Instrumentation and Electrical (I&E) track. Process technicians are responsible for operating, controlling, and monitoring the steel manufacturing or chemical processes involved in steel production or chemical and other related plant industry processes. Technicians in all areas must have knowledge of mechanics, electronics, pneumatics, and plant unit operations; therefore, they take Technical Core classes in addition to their General Education classes.

Entering students are required to have high school diploma (or GED).
