Instrumentation Technology with Lab distance learning course.

Instrumentation Technology with Lab

Students learn about control processes and measurement functions of instrumentation devices used in diagnosing systems in most types of manufacturing plants. It's a well-rounded program that includes essential troubleshooting techniques and simulation labs covering Electrical Power, Machines, Control Systems and Computer Aided Circuit Design.

The laboratory portion of this course uses computer simulation software to show students how to create elements of an industrial control system and understand how these elements affect overall system operation.

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.
