The Industrial Instrumentation and Electrical Technology (IIET) program provides specialized classroom instruction and practical experience to prepare students for employment in industrial instrumentation careers in the manufacturing and production industries. Upon completion, graduates will understand the principles of electricity and electronics, industrial instrumentation and automated equipment. This program consists of a core set of courses from which the student can choose to make up the technical diploma.
Graduates of this program work in a wide variety of industrial settings, including pulp, paper, and chemical mills; petroleum, steel, and automotive manufacturing. Technicians troubleshoot, maintain, repair, replace, and install process control equipment to produce quality products and ensure environmental protection, safety, and cost-effective operations.
Students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and complete all required courses to graduate from this program. Completion time depends on course load, course withdrawals, and repeat courses. The program takes approximately four semesters to complete based on full-time status (15+ hours per semester).
The estimated program cost per semester (subject to change) is $3,644 (based on highest credential available).
