Show 508 – Industrial Maintenance
/ University of West Alabama – Industrial Maintenance Program /
Most business and manufacturing facilities rely on some sort of machinery to run their business. For manufacturing industries, equipment such as PLC’s, CNC machines, and other equipment are used and require knowledge people to not only run the equipment but also maintain the equipment when it fails or requires inspections. Industrial Maintenance is a career that is always in demand and always pays well. At the University of West Alabama, students enrolled in the two-year Industrial Maintenance Program are receiving education in PLC’s, network communications, Fluid power, Electronics, and other areas that are assisting them in gaining employment with the industries in their area.
We visited UWA’s Industrial Maintenance Program to get some insight about the program and what students learn.
