Industrial Mechanical Technician

Associate in Applied Science (AAS)

A skilled workforce is critical to supporting a healthy manufacturing industry here in central Wisconsin. In the next few years, a large number of retirements in the area of skilled trades will trigger the need to hire increased numbers of skilled technicians. Are you interested in working in a field where your skills are in demand?

In Mid-State’s Industrial Mechanical Technician (IMT) program, you will satisfy your curiosity of how things work through a variety of hands-on classroom experiences, field trips, interactive discussions, and real-life lab activities. Always in demand, industrial mechanical technicians maintain, repair, and operate machinery and equipment in an industrial environment. Mid-State’s IMT program graduates have the opportunity to pursue employment in a variety of job settings such as industrial manufacturing companies, food manufacturing/processing plants, farms, industrial contract service providers, machine shops, and welding/fabricating shops.

The need for skilled trade workers is very high in central Wisconsin and around the country. IMT graduates will fill many of the skilled trade openings created through attrition and retirement, meaning this program and its graduates are vital to sustaining a healthy central Wisconsin manufacturing industry and economy.
