Integrated Systems Technology Program

What is Integrated Systems Technology? The IST program cross-trains individuals in electrical, electronic and mechanical systems. Students acquire entry level knowledge of operating, troubleshooting and maintaining the high-tech equipment found in today’s manufacturing environments. Topics covered include electricity, programmable logic controllers (PLC), pneumatics, hydraulics and mechanical systems. This approach allows students to develop skills in multiple areas, rather than one specific skill.
