Instrumentation and Control technicians solve electrical, electronic, and computer problems using their minds and hands. These technicians install, upgrade, maintain, and repair automated equipment in industries that produce everything from appliances, medical equipment, ethanol and electric power. As an Instrumentation and Control student you learn calibration and control of industrial process equipment. You learn about process variables such as motor speed, temperature control, humidity control, pressure, level, and flow rate. To enter this high-tech program you should have an interest in problem solving. The program has high school options and part-time schedules available. The program includes a 42-day Internship in the fall semester of the second year. NCC has the only Industrial Instrumentation and Control program in Iowa. Partnerships with several area industries allow greater learning opportunities, and the diversity of the program allows you a wide choice of employment after you graduate. There is a critical shortage of people who are trained in Industrial Instrumentation and Control. Graduates are working in food processing facilities, manufacturing plants, electrical power generating plants, ethanol plants, and more. One year of high school algebra is recommended.
