Program Overview

Millwrights or Industrial Mechanics work on a wide variety of equipment from simple pumps to complex power trains. Technicians in this field may work in a refinery, power plant, local repair shop or become a "road warrior" with a local union and travel from job to job.

Technicians will work on rotating equipment including all types of pumps, blowers, fans, turbines, gearboxes, rotary valves, clarifiers, compressors, and turbines just to name a few. Technicians may also work alongside operations to determine the best way to warm up, start, or stop equipment.
