Instrumentation and Controls Course

Students learn to setup, maintain and troubleshoot integrated control systems used in power plants, large buildings and most types of manufacturing plants. It's a well-rounded program that includes essential troubleshooting techniques and hands-on labs covering Electrical Power, Machines, Control Systems and Computer Aided Circuit Design.

This new Diploma course will give a person with no prior computer experience the skills and confidence needed to enter the Electro-mechanical technician field.

Electro-mechanical technicians combine knowledge of mechanical technology with knowledge of electrical and electronic circuits. They operate, test, and maintain unmanned, automated, robotic, or electromechanical equipment.
