   indicates graduate story

This accelerated program is designed to meet industry's need for a skilled workforce. It provides the opportunity for a graduate with an Engineering Technology Degree, Engineering Degree, and Science Degree in Physics or Chemistry, to earn an advanced technical diploma in instrumentation within a shorter time frame than the regular Instrumentation & Control Engineering Technology program. The accelerated program is delivered in seven terms and includes three recommended co-op terms compared to the three-year Instrumentation & Control Engineering Technology program which includes three co-op terms in a nine-term program.

The program provides the needed technical background as well as a significant hands-on opportunity to develop skills to operate and maintain control systems that incorporate digital, pneumatic and hydraulic processes. Instruments are used in controlling process variables such as temperature, pressure, level and flow quantities in a variety of industrial and commercial buildings. The program labs duplicate a real-life manufacturing environment and the technologies developed can easily be scaled-up and transferred to the actual operating unit. Moreover, students in this program will have the opportunity to work in relevant industries within the three co-op terms.
