Instrumentation Engineering Technology
Study the integration of mechanical, electrical, chemical and electronic components of control systems.
After successfully completing the first year of Electrical Engineering Technology, you can choose the Instrumentation Engineering Technology specialization to study the integration of mechanical, electrical, chemical and electronic components of control systems.
This program provides the knowledge and skills related to industrial instrumentation. Technologists use their skills to design and calibrate systems used to measure, record and control industrial process variables. You will learn to place, set up, configure, overhaul, maintain and calibrate sensors, controllers and actuators or Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) on automated machinery for both the primary resource industries and secondary manufacturing industries.
Red River College is equipped with state-of-the-art labs for you to gain experience with remote controls, industrial networks and Distributed Control System (DCS) through such systems as DeltaV and Control Logics process controllers.
