Maintenance Mechanic

Today's advanced manufacturing

Machines are important in our lives—directly or indirectly. Broken or inefficient machines slow the pace of manufacturing and, ultimately, profits. To remain competitive in today’s fast-paced industrial/manufacturing environment, equipment needs to be maintained to run at peak performance. If you like to troubleshoot problems, put theory to work hands-on, and have interests in math and mechanical processes, a career in industrial maintenance may be your key to success.
