Manufacturing & Industrial Technology

Individuals with an understanding of mechanical and industrial systems, including hydraulics, welding and engineering principles are the backbone of manufacturing and industrial production in the United States. This field is hands-on and requires a knowledge of processes, an ability to troubleshoot, and a dedication to quality in workmanship.

If you enjoy working with your hands, knowing how things work, or knowing how to fix things that don’t…this might be a field of work you would enjoy.

Career opportunities as maintenance technicians in electro-mechanical systems and automation are available in Tillamook and across Oregon.

High school students can earn college credits for some courses. See your high school counselor to learn more.

PROGRAM OUTCOMES:  What will you do?

  • Apply collegiate-level thought processes in writing and computer literacy as necessary in the workplace,
  • Apply OSHA certified practices as well as Red Cross safety and first aid procedures to ensure a safe working environment,
  • Use blueprints and techniques of SMAW to make repairs and build equipment in industrial settings,
  • Be able to apply concepts gained in composition to develop and present public presentations in professional settings,
  • Use concepts of the scientific and mathematical method in areas such as biological and physical sciences in applications of electrical theory, rigging, and hydraulics commonly used in modern world
    class manufacturing processes,
  • Apply various theories of interpersonal and individual relationships and constructive team participation in work situations where common goals exist,
  • Be able to integrate scientific and mathematical concepts in diagnosis and repair of industrial equipment,
  • Apply scientific and mathematical concepts as well as technological applications in the improvement of work process and disciplines to aid team-building, process and product improvement, as well as
    assist in other life roles.

MIT Certificate Requirements

All courses in Career Pathways Certificates count toward the AAS degree in Manufacturing and Industrial Technology. When you have finished the pathway certificate you have completed the first step in the degree.

Manufacturing Technician Certificates
The following certificates in Manufacturing Technician all share the same core courses. After completing the core, students may choose to complete one emphasis area or complete all emphasis areas in the following areas: Welding, Machining, Electrical or Millwright. Students who are considering apprenticeships may also start here.

CORE courses for Manufacturing Technician: Welding, Machining, Electrical, & Millwright Certificates:

IMT 106 Hand Tool/Power Tool Use & Safety 1

In addition to the Manufacturing Technician Certificates, the program carries the Certified Production Technician Certificate. Students who successfully complete this certificate will also earn national certification through the Manufacturing Skills and Standards Council (MSSC). MSSC certification establishes the student’s competence in Safety, Quality, Continuous Improvement, Manufacturing Processes & Production, and Maintenance Awareness.

Certified Production Technician: 13 Credits

IMT102 Industrial Safety 4
IMT222 Practices and Measurement 3
IMT230 Preventative Maintenance 3
MCH102 Intro to Manufacturing 3

You may complete more than one of these certificates and the core will count toward all of them.

Apprenticeship Certificates

Tillamook Bay Community College is a member of the statewide community college Apprenticeship Consortium.

Apprenticeship is a partnership between business, industry, labor, and government that enables a student to receive training in a skilled trade through classroom and on-the-job training (OJT).

While the Apprenticeship program is closely related to the Manufacturing and Industrial Technology (MIT) program, they are two distinct areas with similar, yet different training purposes. In fact, apprentices and
MIT students are sometimes in the same classes together.

Students in apprenticeship programs are working toward getting their licenses or certifications based on the requirements of the JATC (Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee) and BOLI (Oregon State Bureau of Labor & Industry).

Apprenticeship training has two parts:

• Apprentices must be sponsored or employed by an individual or company for on-the-job-training (OJT).
• Apprentices must attend college classes that are specified in the requirements by the State of Oregon.

Students must work a certain number of hours and take classes for a certain number of hours each year in order to be in the program. Most apprenticeship programs take two to four years.

Tillamook Bay Community College offers four Apprenticeship programs:

• Limited Maintenance Electrician: 4000 Hours; 28 Credits
• Inside Electrician: 8000 Hours; 59 Credits
• Industrial Plant Technician: 8000 Hours; 55 Credits
• Industrial Maintenance Millwright: 8000 Hours; 52 Credits

The Apprenticeship certificates meet the requirement of related classroom training. The total credits and coursework meet the requirements of Oregon State Bureau of Labor and the North Coast Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee.
