  • Students pursuing this award program are waived from the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) standards, but must meet course prerequisites.
  • Complete at least 25% of the credit hours required for graduation through instruction by Dallas College.

Degree Plan Code: C1.ET.MECH.ELEC

This certificate prepares students for installation, troubleshooting and repair of equipment and machinery in various types of manufacturing operations. The maintenance technician must be a multi-talented individual with a specific skill set that can keep equipment and machinery operating at peak performance, eliminating costly down-time. Additionally, a maintenance technician must be able to perform preventative maintenance to keep machines running and minimize downtime. The courses focus on the fundamental industrial skills into mechanical maintenance principles and applications, fluid power and hydraulic systems, pneumatic systems, and industrial robotics systems.

Students learn theory and experience hands-on opportunities in hydraulics, pneumatics, technician maintenance, electricity and programmable logical control (PLC's), all of which are necessary for a successful career in the maintenance field.

  • Understand DC and AC principles and components including motors, controllers, and PLC's.
  • Install and test electrical wires, circuits, and equipment using the correct equipment, materials, and procedures for safe operation.
  • Identify and interpret legends, linetypes, parts symbols, and types of drawings used in reading mechanical shop prints.
  • Identify, describe, remove, replace, install, and maintain common types of bearings and seals.
  • Match lubrication methods and materials to their applications and identify their implementation and maintenance requirements.
  • Explain the principles of fluid power, fluid flow, and fluid symbols and diagrams.
  • Explain hydraulic pumping principles and how the common types of hydraulic pumps, motors, and peripheral devices work.
  • Troubleshoot and maintain hydraulic circuits and systems.
  • Explain the properties of air, the basic laws of gases, and pneumatic principles.
  • Identify, describe, maintain, and troubleshoot the basic components of a pneumatic system.
