Put yourself in control. 

Think about all things you take for granted during a typical day. Turn on the faucet, and you get water. Flip a switch, and you get light. Press the accelerator, and you get where you want to go. But none of that can happen without the skills of trained electronics professionals. Instrumentation and process control is about measuring and automatically controlling a variety of process variables that make it possible to produce everything from chemicals to food to electricity.

In our Industrial Instrumentation program, the learning is real-world, practical, and designed to prepare you for a challenging career that puts both your hands-on skills and your problem-solving abilities to the test. In our state-of-the-art lab, there’s no such thing as computer simulation. You’ll work with the same devices you’ll use in the field as you learn to install, calibrate, and troubleshoot process instrumentation for measuring level, flow, rate, mass flow rate, pressure, and temperature. You’ll prepare to calibrate and troubleshoot control loops involved in process instruments, programmable logic controllers, digital chart recorders, process variable indicators, control valves, and communications systems.

The tools you work with, and the curriculum you follow, are straight from some of the top names in the process control industry.

Every type of industry, locally and around the world, needs highly trained process instrumentation and controls system technicians. With your Industrial Instrumentation degree, you can be in control of your future.
