Electronic Engineering Technology

Instrumentation Option

A.A.S. Degree (S)

The Instrumentation Engineering Technology Option prepares graduates for careers as process control instrumentation engineering technicians. Workplace duties can include design, specification, management and troubleshooting of instrumentation and control systems in the areas of chemical processing, food processing, petrochemical production,manufacturing, energy production and other highly technical fields. Graduates offer their employers immediate contributions as team members equipped with a combination of technical knowledge, problem solving experience and communication skills. Courses include a strong component of practical applications, hands-on laboratory experience and basic theoretical concepts. Computer simulation and applications are an integral part of the curriculum. Studies focus on electrical and electronic circuits, digital circuits, microprocessors, computers, programmable logic controls, liquid and gas flow measurement, control systems, instrumentation and calibration. The Instrumentation Engineering Technology Option is a path through the Electronics Engineering Technology program.
