Associate of Applied Science: Energy Systems Instrumentation Engineering Technology
- Solve technical problems typical of those encountered in the instrumentation engineering technology discipline by using critical thinking skills, current technology, principles of mathematics, and applied science.
- Work and communicate effectively in multidisciplinary teams in both industrial and academic settings.
- Understand current professional issues and the need to pursue lifelong learning.
Graduates will have a fundamental knowledge of energy systems, thermodynamics, electronics and electrical systems. They will have extensive hands-on experience setting up and troubleshooting single and three-phase motor controls, variable frequency drives, programmable logic controllers, sensors, relays, timers, solenoids, and human machine interface stations. They will be able to install, troubleshoot and calibrate instrumentation that measures and controls temperature, level, flow, pressure and other process variables.
Students must register concurrently for the lab course associated with each theory course.
