      Job Outlook

      Bright future, high demand: The industrial maintenance job outlook 

      The world relies on complex machinery to keep things running smoothly, and skilled industrial maintenance technicians are the ones who ensure it all keeps humming. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 13% growth in industrial machinery mechanics, machinery maintenance workers and millwrights jobs by 2032, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. This surge is driven by several factors, including: 

      • Aging infrastructure: Existing industrial equipment requires ongoing maintenance and repair to keep pace with production demands. 
      • Increased automation: As factories integrate more complex automation systems, the need for technicians to maintain and troubleshoot these systems will rise.
      • Skilled worker shortage: The current generation of industrial maintenance technicians is nearing retirement age, creating a gap that needs to be filled by qualified individuals. 

      An Industrial Maintenance Technology Degree from Clackamas Community College positions you to capitalize on this growing demand and secure a stable, rewarding career in a thriving field.
