Energy Systems Instrumentation Engineering Technology
Have you ever wondered how things work or how things are made? Come learn the fundamentals of energy systems. Once you learn the basics, you will expand your knowledge and expertise in the Instrumentation Engineering Technology program by learning how to program logic controllers (PLCs), build motor control systems, calibrate equipment, tune process control loops, and work with automated systems. If you don’t have a background in any of these things, then you’re just like every other new ESTEC student. You’ll get the vocabulary and, more importantly, you’ll gain the skills necessary to make a difference in the world.
