Industrial Technology AAS

Industrial Technology (AAS)

The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Technology is a focused, career-oriented program that meshes the latest techniques in precision mechanical engineering, controls theory, computer science and electronics by applying them to the design process to create more functional and adaptable products.  Industrial Technology is where mechanics, electronics and controls intersect.  The term Mechatronics was first coined in Japan some 30 years ago.  Since then, Mechatronics has come to mean a synergistic blend of mechanics and electronics.  The word’s meaning is somewhat broader than the traditional term electro mechanics, which to many denotes the use of electrostatic or electromagnetic devices.

Industrial Technology is a significant design trend that has a marked influence on the product-development process, international competition in manufactured goods, the nature of mechanical engineering education in coming years, and quite probably the success mechanical engineers will have in becoming team leaders or engineering managers.

Students trained in this program will be able to:
•    Think critically and analytically in order to solve problems and formulate decisions and opinions while utilizing mathematical skills.
•    Demonstrate understanding of electrical circuits, Ohm’s Law, DC power, and AC power and their relationships to industrial equipment.
•    Describe basic industrial wiring, conduit sizes, their connections, and common practices in the industrial workplace.
•    Comprehend PLCs and their application in industrial automation.
•    Demonstrate understanding of electrical motors, overloads, starters, and motor control techniques.
•    Demonstrate understanding of fluid power, both hydraulic and pneumatic, basic usages and control of each system.
•    Solve issues and diagnose electrical and mechanical industrial equipment and their components.
•    Control automation, connecting all learned disciplines into a systems approach culminating with Flexible Manufacturing.

To be admitted to the program, students must meet the general education diploma (GED) requirements or have a high school diploma.  The Associate of Applied Science Degree program in Industrial Technology is an open admissions degree program and, as such, conforms to New River Community and Technical College admissions requirements.  Performance standards consist of maintaining a 2.0 or better grade point average in the program and within the institution.

Community Paramedicine

Community Paramedicine

Community paramedicine is an emerging healthcare profession. It allows paramedics to operate in expanded roles to provide healthcare services to underserved populations. It is a way to improve rural emergency medical services (EMS) as well as address the healthcare needs of the community. Some rural patients lack access to primary care, and misuse 911 services in an attempt to access emergency departments for routine healthcare. This is demanding on volunteer EMS personnel in rural areas and causes strains on the workforce. Working in a primary care role, community paramedics can meet the needs of such individuals, as well as others in the community, in a more efficient and proactive way.” In addition, the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians has a plethora of information on their website.  Click here to read more about Community Paramedicine.

The Emergency Medical program at New River CTC is accepting applications for a Community Paramedicine Course at the Greenbrier Valley Campus. The course will be offered on Fridays beginning January 20 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is a 26-week course and it costs $2,000. Students must be a certified paramedic to enroll.
