Description
After successfully completing the first year of Electrical Engineering Technology, you can choose the Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technology specialization to study the integration of mechanical, electrical, chemical, and electronic components of control systems.

This program provides the knowledge and skills related to industrial instrumentation. Technologists use their skills to design and calibrate systems used to measure, record, and control industrial process variables. You will learn to place, set up, configure, overhaul, maintain and calibrate sensors, controllers, and actuators or Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) on automated machinery for both the primary resource industries and secondary manufacturing industries.

Red River College Polytechnic is equipped with state-of-the-art labs for you to gain experience with remote controls, industrial networks, and Distributed Control System (DCS) through such systems as DeltaV and Control Logics process controllers.

When necessary, students will be given priority selection of their second year specialization based on their first year Grade Point Average (GPA).

Admission Requirements

Successful completion of the first year of the Electrical Engineering Technology program

Who Should Enrol?

To be successful in this program, you need an inquisitive mind, and you should enjoy working on practical problems. Because you will be working with equipment that requires hand and finger coordination, manual dexterity is important.

You should have the desire to enhance your language skills because jobs in this field will ultimately require you to issue clear verbal instructions on site and to write concise reports for management.

As many students have found this program academically demanding, you should be prepared to set aside two to three hours each evening for assignments.
