Industrial Maintenance Technology

Today’s complex and sophisticated buildings, plants and factories require a highly-trained technical workforce to service and maintain facilities and equipment, control energy costs, and ensure facility quality for owners and clients.


Industrial Maintenance Technology involves keeping industrial systems working properly.  Technicians working in industry are those who work directly with machines: troubleshooting, calibrating, repairing, re-programming, and maintaining them.  They are involved with installing machines, making them work, taking care of them so that they do not break down (maintenance), re-programing and rebuilding them to do different tasks, and troubleshooting and repairing them when they fail. 


Graduates of this program will find opportunities in many areas like hospitals, schools, manufacturing, and distribution centers.  Organizations which have relatively large facilities using complex HVAC, control or electrical systems either as a part of the facilities or as production equipment will benefit from the addition of an Industrial Maintenance technician to their staff.


This program is delivered in Yankton, South Dakota, through a partnership with RTEC.


When you enroll in the IMT program, you will spend nine months (two semesters) in the program. 

This program was featured during a special presentation by South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard in 2012.  Read more about it in the Yankton Press & Dakotan or on the KITV website.
