2 years

-Main Campus
The Program

Instrumentation and Automation Engineering Technology equips students with the knowledge and skills of measurement techniques, control strategies, robotics, automatic control of industrial machines and equipment needed to respond to dynamic challenges in this field. Students suited to this program are interested in maintaining and designing systems used to measure and control systems within a variety of industries such as food and beverage, oil and gas, water treatment, power generation, agriculture, and more. Emphasis is on critical thinking and innovative design as well as diagnosis and troubleshooting technical problems. Through applied learning and a capstone project, students will develop proficiency in design, problem solving, and collaboration in diverse settings.

Program Outcomes:

1. Plan, configure, deploy, analyze, and troubleshoot industrial automation and process control systems. 

2. Plan, select, commission, and maintain electrical machines and drive. 

3. Plan, integrate, analyze, and troubleshoot industrial instrumentation systems, electro-mechanical machines, and devices. 

4. Plan, deploy, analyze, and troubleshoot robotic systems and control.

5. Solve engineering technology and applied science problems using mathematical theory and applied principles.

6. Plan, design, create, deploy, and troubleshoot computer programming solutions for micro, centralized, and distributed industrial automation and control applications.

7. Analyze, access, and document data preparing graphics, charts, drawings, and reports for engineering technology/applied science projects.

8. Research, design, test, analyze, conclude and defend a technology report. (Capstone Project relating to significat technology related issue.)

9. Describe, validate, analyze and calibrate various analytical instruments and industrial analyzers.

10. Demonstrate inclusive attitudes and practices valuing individualism, diversity, culture, and Indigenous knowledge and awareness.

11. Practice clear and effective written, oral, visual, and electronic communication.

12. Locate and select evidence based information suitable for context and need.

13. Demonstrate ethical independent and collaborative leadership, working safely and effectively in coordination with others.
