67-72 Credit Hours

The General Technology major allows students to select course work necessary to become multi-skilled technicians. In addition to completing the college’s core curriculum, students also complete course work in at least two technical areas. The following is an example of a career path available. The secondary paths may be substituted for courses in other programs’ primary path. Interested students should talk with their advisors.

This program prepares students for a broad range of employment within the industrial maintenance field. The program is designed to develop multi- skilled technicians who install, maintain and repair commercial or industrial machinery in buildings, process plants or manufacturing settings. The mechanical primary path provides a solid foundation in drive systems, hydraulics, pneumatics, pumps, piping systems, and machinery preventive and predictive maintenance. As part of the associate degree program students choose a secondary path in a technical field of study. Students can choose air conditioning and refrigeration, welding, industrial electrical and automation controls or machine tool technology. See your advisor for more information.

Students can earn only one General Technology degree in a single career path.
