The Wastewater Treatment Plant Technology Program is a multifaceted program that utilizes many areas of mechanics including electronics automation computers hydraulics programmable logic controllers electrical systems and mechanical systems. The program is designed to prepare students for employment as entry-level wastewater treatment plant technicians and emphasizes extensive practical experience in both theory and laboratory settings using mock-up equipment and assemblies similar to those found in the industry. Instruction advances many of the concepts learned in the Industrial Mechanics/Millwright and Mechatronics programs and includes theory troubleshooting and hands-on application in mechatronics programmable logic controllers pneumatics AC and DC electrical systems hydraulics and motor control.
Successful completion of each semester and/or permission of the instructor is required for acceptance into the next semester. Placement in specific English and math courses is determined by the college assessment test.
