Occupational Data*

Industrial systems technicians maintain and repair factory equipment and other industrial machinery, such as conveying systems, production machinery, and packaging equipment. Millwrights install, dismantle, repair, reassemble, and move machinery in factories, power plants, and construction sites. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for industrial systems technicians, machinery mechanics, machinery maintenance workers, and millwrights was $50,440 in May 2017. Employment in this field is projected to grow around six percent over the coming decade, as the need to keep increasingly sophisticated machinery functioning and efficient continues to create demand for qualified workers.
