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, basic drafting using AutoCAD, welding, blueprint reading, and plumbing. 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, and level one and two certificates in Industrial Technology.
