CURRICULAR GUIDE

Machine Maintenance
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0173  (Effective Fall 2000 - Summer 2005)

Machine maintenance technicians are involved with the repair, maintenance, and
installation of industrial equipment.  They repair the machinery of industry,
solving mechanical problems.  The skills necessary for this type of work are
many and varied: critical thinking, problem solving, mechanics, math and
physics are but a few.  Maintenance technicians also need to know how to
diagnose hydraulic problems, perform preventive maintenance procedures, and be
able to work well with others.  Every industrial plant will have one or more
machine maintenance technicians.  They may have different titles, but the work
is the same.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  For information on how to fulfill all general education
requirements, see page 23.
