Where it Can Take You
Graduates will generally apprentice as heavy equipment technicians. Occasionally, they may seek career opportunities in industries such as automotive technician, millwright and heavy industrial settings.
During the four semesters of Industrial Heavy Equipment Technology program training, graduates will apply to Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training and may have the opportunity to challenge prior learning assessments through AIT.
Graduates may also choose to work in sales or purchasing, which involves the technical specifications for equipment. Entering into a business situation is made easier by the technical and management background provided in this program.
What successful grads have to say
In my position I'm required to troubleshoot problems on engines and compressors, analyze failures, interpret and write reports, and make presentations ranging from government inquiries to public relations. So far I have, at one time or another, used almost everything I learned at NAIT. I keep most of my notes and texts in my office, just in case, I have to go back and use them for a formula or to refesh my memory on something. With today's business changing so rapidly, every piece of knowledge one can learn is an asset and the IHET program gave me an excellent start.
