Instrumentation & Controls Engineering Technology

Associates in Applied Science (AAS)

Do you have strong math, physics, and electronics skills? Are you a good technical problem solver and are able to work independently or on teams? As the demand for automated processes grows, Instrumentation & Controls Engineering Technology is the place to be!

You will operate state-of-the-art equipment while learning to use a variety of different forms of instrumentation such as electrical, electronic, pneumatic, hydraulic, mechanical, and computerized control devices. You will also take field trips to businesses that have process control systems as an integral part of operations.

Technicians may be employed in many different industries, including food processing plants, waste water treatment facilities, paper mills, electrical power generation facilities, and programmable logic controller (PLC) system design industries.

MSTC’s Instrumentation & Controls Engineering Technology program is offered at Wisconsin Rapids Campus and is the only program of its kind in the Wisconsin Technical College System.
