The tools to get started.

There are a wide range of instrumentation and control positions in the manufacturing and energy fields. In our Instrumentation and Control program, you’ll prepare to start your career by learning to apply fundamental engineering principles and technical skills to support engineers who develop industrial control and measurement systems and procedures. You’ll study basic electronics for industry, electrical circuits and electronics, instrumentation, PLC’s (programmable logic controllers), embedded computing, process control, instrumentation installation and maintenance, calibration, design and production testing and scheduling, automated equipment functions, and more.

You’ll finish your training with an internship experience or capstone course to help you make the connection between theory and practice. As a graduate, you’ll be ready to enter the oil and gas, mining, power generation, or power distribution industries, where our graduates are in high demand.
