Industrial Technology

Today’s highly technical industrial workplace is a competitive environment that recognizes employees with highly specialized skills. Kaskaskia College’s Industrial Technology and Automation programs provide high quality, hands-on training in developing the skills employers are looking for in programming, operating, servicing, and maintaining manufacturing systems and processes. Each of KC's three degrees in this field focuses on different, yet important areas:

  • Industrial Robotics
  • Programmable Controllers (PLC)
  • Instrument and Process Control
  • Hydraulics and Pneumatics
  • Industrial Wiring
  • Drives and Motors
  • Computer Numerical Control (CNC)
  • Solid State and Digital Electronics

KC’s curriculum provides students the opportunity to learn electrical, electronic, electro-mechanical, fluid power, and welding basics. Each program offers an A.A.S. Degree, which provides a strong base for students seeking employment, or transfer into a baccalaureate program. These courses are offered in a flexible lab schedule format to allow students working any shift to attend.

Our courses help you build a strong foundation in the field and our specializations allow you to focus on the specific skills, tools and systems valued by employers. Whether you’re in an entry-level position or looking to enhance your technical skills, you can advance your career through our versatile program.
