Program Overview

Industrial Mechanics make parts using various hand and machine tools. They perform welding and fabrication, installation of fluid power systems, pumps, valves and piping and possess basic electrical skills. They also perform machine repair and troubleshooting of industrial mechanical systems and material-handling equipment and have skills in the rigging of loads and crane operations. This program appeals to students who have a mechanical aptitude and enjoy hands-on work. They need to be organized and enjoy a challenge while working both independently and as part of a team.

Program Highlights

  • Small class sizes and a hands-on learning environment provide graduates with advanced Industrial knowledge and skills.
  • Millwright shop exposes students to machining, alignment, hydraulics and pneumatics, electrical, precision measuring, pump stations, welding, pipe fitting, rigging, and more.
  • Graduates enjoy very good employment prospects.
  • St. Clair College is the first and only college to offer a course for Robot Repair and Maintenance. Students get to understand the mechanical side of robots including tearing them down, inspecting and rebuilding them back to working order.

Upon successful completion of this program, a graduate may be granted credit by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development for 433A - levels 1 & 2 in the School of Industrial Millwright Mechanic Apprenticeship Training with approval from the employer.

Career Opportunities

Job opportunities are great for technicians to work in industrial and manufacturing environments in power generation, food processing and water/waste treatment plants. With a strong background in both theory and practice, graduates are well-prepared for positions as millwright apprentices.
