construction, automotive, metals technologies along with business, management
and leadership skills. The goal of the degree is to
provide cross discipline training that will prepare a student to maintain all
types of plant equipment from heavy equipment to plant automation equipment, as
well as maintain the plant structures and manage the people that run them. Graduates of the program will be qualified for jobs as facilities and
plant maintenance technicians and be prepared for management and supervision
roles as well as many more specialized areas of the
industrial electronics and technical maintenance and management.
Facilities Technology Management is not designed to be a transfer program but to provide students with industry applicable skills within a two-year period. However, some courses within the program may eventually be linked with four-year industrial technology and agricultural technology programs that provide students with a path for continuing their degree studies.
