Overview

After earning an Associate of Applied Science degree in Electrical / Electronics, Instrumentation Concentration, students can then pursue an Associate in Applied Science or Bachelor of Technology in Instrumentation Engineering Technology.


Students continue to build on their knowledge and skill set in the areas of safety applications; DC electronics and metrology; AC electronics and photonics; industrial electrical systems and motors; digital systems and microcontrollers; hydraulics and pneumatics; and basic design drafting.

One of my biggest challenges is finding enough qualified people to fill our operations and technician positions. Fortunately, at OSU Institute of Technology, students are receiving the training Chevron needs for its workforce.

After graduation, those who earn their degree are qualified to design, specify, troubleshoot, and manage instrumentation and control systems in the fields of chemical processing, food processing, oil and gas production, manufacturing, energy production, and other highly technical fields.

Because of the high-level skill set and education obtained through earning an Associate in Applied Science or Bachelor of Technology in Instrumentation, graduates of the program are better equipped for advancement into management positions as more companies install and upgrade high-tech production systems.

Professionals trained in high-tech automations solutions are in demand as companies seek to increase the consistency, quantity and quality of goods produced in Oklahoma to better compete in the global market.
