Electromechanical Instrumentation Technology

Associates of Applied Science Degree
63 Credits

Course List

Purpose: The Electromechanical Instrumentation Technology Associate in Applied Science Degree is designed to provide students with additional knowledge beyond our Residential and Commercial Electricity program in the areas of Programmable Logic Controls, Instrumentation, Computer Electronics, and Physics. Graduates of this program will have solid skills to work in the production, manufacturing and process industries. The graduate will possess knowledge of the control process in manufacturing and production, troubleshooting, and maintaining such systems.

Graduates from the program will be prepared to assume positions in manufacturing facilities where the process is computer controlled and involves programmable logic circuits and both electronic and pneumatic control. This program has been developed through a cooperative partnership with the local paper production industry. It is designed, however, to be applicable to a variety of manufacturing and production industries. Students will have the opportunity to start careers in the manufacturing sector locally and regionally as well as transfer to four-year programs in the engineering fields.

Program Learning Outcomes: Students who successfully complete the Associates in Applied Science degree in Electromechanical Instrumentation Technology will be able to:

  • Understand and apply knowledge in layout, assembly, installation, and troubleshooting of fixtures, devices, services, heating systems, pumps, motors, and motor controls used in residential, commercial, and industrial locations.
  • Understand and apply knowledge of electrical theory and techniques of the trade, including blueprint reading, wiring, pipe bending, motor control, switching, and power circuits.
  • Demonstrate ability to understand requirements of the National Electrical Code in all wiring installations.
  • Qualify for employment opportunities with manufacturing facilities, companies using process control systems, and industrial maintenance and troubleshooting companies.
