Instrumentation Engineering Technology is an extremely versatile career choice. A variety of employment opportunities are open to IET graduates. Many have found employment locally and internationally in a variety of positions, including:
- instrument design
- technical sales representatives
- field engineering technologists
- maintenance personnel
- testing and commissioning technologists.
What successful grads have to say
The Instrumentation program at NAIT gave me the foundation I needed to start my career. I had technical knowledge and hands-on experience, and I learned how to network and apply for the job of my choice. I am in the engineering consulting business and have been employed by Colt Engineering since I graduated. I feel very comfortable in my career with the skills I acquired at NAIT.
