Technical Studies – Integrated Systems Technology*
*pending approval

Award: ASSOCIATE OF APPLIED SCIENCE


Length: This program is intended for the full-time or part-time student. The length of time
required to complete the program is variable.

Purpose: This program combines the concepts, theory and practices associated with mechanical and electrical processes found in modern automated industries. Students in the Mechanical Track develop the skills to assemble, install, troubleshoot and service pneumatic, hydraulic and mechanical systems. Students in the Electrical / Electronic Track develop skills to install, test and troubleshoot, program and calibrate a variety of electronic devices including robotics and programmable logic controllers. Coursework also provides opportunities where students learn teamwork and lean manufacturing through simulated work experience.

Occupational Objectives: The following occupational titles represent examples of possible employment opportunities:

  • Industrial Integrated Systems Technician Industrial Electrical Technician

  • Industrial Controls Technician

  • Industrial Multi-craft Maintenance Technician Process Technician

  • Industrial Mechanical Technician Mechatronics Technician

Admission Requirements: Students must meet the general admission requirements of the College. All students who are not proficient in communication and computation skills will be required to correct deficiencies through developmental courses.

Program Description: Integrated Systems Technology is a two-year program of study that is comprised of general and technical foundational courses, specific skills and knowledge, and project-based learning. The specific skills and knowledge and project-based learning components are specific to the field of industrial maintenance.

Program Outcomes: Following completion of the AAS degree, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate the knowledge gained in how modern manufacturers use different technologies and automation in manufacturing.
2. Demonstrate the ability to communicate integrated systems concepts effectively.
3. Demonstrate analytical ability to effectively perform machine troubleshooting on simple to complex integrated systems.
4. Demonstrate the use of different types of tools and test equipment that are commonly used to maintain integrated systems in industry.
5. Demonstrate the use of concepts used in manufacturing such as Lean manufacturing and how it relates to integrated systems in an industrial environment.
