Industrial Technology

The Industrial Technology program is designed to provide a working knowledge of the many specialized technical skills performed by personnel working in area plants and elsewhere in the service industry.

Training skills include a working knowledge of electricity, electrical control of motors, programmable logic controls (PLC), heating and cooling systems, refrigeration, air conditioning, construction technology, basic drafting using AutoCAD, cabinet making, welding, blueprint reading, plumbing and industrial safety (ergonomics).

Training includes preparing students for the EPA Section 608 Stationary Certification Refrigeration/Air Conditioning Exam. In addition, an internship program allows students to receive credit for work experience. This internship is linked to a seminar that relates course content to job-related problems.

The Industrial Technology program at Cisco College offers several options, including: a two-year Associate in Applied Science degree, a level one and two certificate in Industrial Technology, a level one certificate in Refrigeration and a level one certificate in Welding.
