In today’s highly automated and mechanized manufacturing sector, skilled professionals are needed to monitor and maintain industrial scale equipment to keep processes going. And when necessary, rapid response is needed to repair broken parts. In any business, revenue comes from production, and when manufacturing processes stops, revenue ceases.  Industrial maintenance technicians are needed to avoid disruptions in production.

The salary range for these jobs varies widely based on company, skill of the employee and location, but industrial maintenance technicians may earn about $45,000 per year on average, with more experienced workers earning $60,000 or more, with some employers paying more than $100,000 for top talent and experience.  Benefits, such as health insurance and retirement plans, are also typically provided.

Depending on the employer and region, job candidates are advised to earn an associate degree from an accredited community college. Industrial maintenance, production, or technology programs are offered at 8 Mississippi community colleges.

Industrial maintenance technicians must demonstrate strong troubleshooting and problem skills, the ability to make decisions based on changing industry dynamics, knowledge of high-tech tools and equipment, awareness of safety standards, a mathematical competency in geometry and other areas necessary to inform problem-solving techniques, and the ability to multitask.
