Instrumentation & Electrical Technology

Associate of  Applied Science (AAS) in Instrumentation and Electrical Technology

Effective Fall 2021 our Industrial Instrumentation Technology program will change to Instrumentation & Electrical Technology (IET).

This program prepares students for a successful career as an Instrumentation and Electrical Technician. In the fall semester (August), new cohorts of students begin the IET program and progress through two years/four semesters, taking their instrumentation classes in a defined sequence. Students are able to schedule general education classes at times that will meet their needs and are advised to take as many general education classes as possible if waiting for fall admission into the IET program or while working on developmental requirements. The Associate of Applied Sciences degree is a degree program designed to help students reach their educational or occupational goals. All courses applied to the degree must be passed with a “C” or better. Developmental courses may not be applied to the degree.
