Automated Industrial Technology


You may have heard that the era of automation is upon us. The robots are coming! 

You also may have heard that everything’s about to change, including jobs in general and high-paying manufacturing jobs in particular. Fortunately, Pima has a plan for that.

Our Automated Industrial Technology (AIT) program prepares students for high-demand careers running the complex automated assembly lines of the future. 

We have worked hand-in-hand with major Arizona employers, such as Raytheon Missile Systems and Boeing, to deliver coursework that teaches skills employers need. 

You are a good fit for AIT if you like to analyze complex systems and work with diagrams, and enjoy learning about math and science. 

Our certificate programs will prepare you for National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification exams. NIMS certification is valuable because it is recognized by employers in industries throughout the U.S. So you can keep a step ahead of the robots wherever you work.
