Maintenance and Repair Concentration (9439)

The Maintenance and Repair Concentration prepares graduates for repairing and maintaining equipment in an industrial environment.

The AWT option is designed to meet AWT employment needs throughout the Alliance in Northeast Ohio. See

The ArcelorMittal Endorsed Option for the Maintenance and Repair Concentration (ArcelorMittal Steelworker for the Future Program) is for students wanting a career as a maintenance technician mechanical at ArcelorMittal Cleveland. The Steelworker for the Future program is a partnership with Lakeland Community College, ArcelorMittal Cleveland, and the United Steelworkers Local 979 designed to prepare students for successful careers as mechanical maintenance or electrical maintenance technicians in the steel industry. Steelworker for the Future is an estimated 2.5-year program that includes four semesters of classroom training, plus up to 16 weeks of paid on-the-job (co-op) training at ArcelorMittal Cleveland for students who pass the company’s hiring requirements. Students will earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree and can be eligible for hire at ArcelorMittal upon completion of the program. (Students are not required to work for ArcelorMittal, nor are they guaranteed employment at ArcelorMittal.) For more information about the program and to apply go to

Note: Students without prior exposure to machining will find CIMN 0950 Introduction to Machine-Tool Technology helpful in gaining experience for CIMN 1110 Machining Processes.
