The Industrial Mechanics Technology program is designed to prepare the graduate for a career in the operation, repair and maintenance of industrial equipment used for power output and product transfer commonly used in the petrochemical and related industries. The objectives of this program are to provide the Industrial Mechanics technician with a foundation of technical knowledge and mechanical skills necessary to install, maintain, repair and troubleshoot sophisticated machinery including pumps, compressors, turbines, air handling equipment, plant conveyor systems, and other equipment found in the industrial setting.

The program will provide students the opportunity to develop skills in areas including using precision instruments, alignment procedures, vibration analysis, rigging, blueprint reading, pipefitting, machining processes, welding, troubleshooting, maintenance planning, computer applications, and service manual applications.

Lamar Institute of Technology also requires students to register for the College Success Skills course in their first semester. The course is designed to provide students with a thorough orientation of the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success. Students must successfully complete the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) certification exam. The NCCER certification is a national industry recognized certification.
