Instrumentation Technology Courses
Explore the challenging field of industrial instrumentation! The International Society of Automation (ISA) defines instrumentation as "the art and science of measurement and control." Instrumentation engineering generally involves the practical application of pneumatic, electronic and microcomputer measurement and control systems. Students will learn to work with various instruments, from mechanical float-level controls to complex computer-based modelling systems.
Students who take one or more of these courses can earn credits towards the full-time Instrumentation Engineering Technologist diploma. The courses are also appropriate for people who already work in the instrumentation or electrical fields and who wish to formalize some of their training. If you simply have a general interest or want to explore the field, the courses offer a solid introduction to instrumentation.
Instrumentation technologists generally work on the practical application of pneumatic, electronic and microcomputer measurement and control systems. Examples of employers who consistently employ well-trained instrumentation personnel include oil and gas producers, chemical companies, electronics firms, food and beverage firms, and utilities (power/water/wastewater).
