    About

    We look forward to becoming a part of your educational journey If you are interested in machine automation, and you enjoy learning about science and technology, a career as a fluid power technician could be an excellent path for you.

    In this program, you’ll learn to repair, maintain and help design pneumatics (compressed air) and hydraulics (pressurized oil) systems. Through hands-on learning in the lab, you’ll develop skills in advanced fluid power circuits and circuit design, machine shop tools, component repair, programmable controllers, arc welding, hydraulic component testing, and fluid line fabrication.

    As a graduate of the program, you’ll be ready to take the test to become nationally certified by the Fluid Power Society. Whether you want to stay in the Northwest or work overseas, this program positions you for opportunities in manufacturing, mining, fishing, wood products, food processing and other industries that use automated technologies.
