This Advanced Skill Set enables students to calibrate advanced industrial instrumentation and process control and final control devices.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Calibrate pressure, level, flow and temperature instruments
  • Calibrate analyzer instruments (e.g. pH, Conductivity, Gas Spectroscopy)
  • Install and tune instruments for an integrated multiple point control system (e.g. cascade control, level, pressure, temperature flow, input-output flow matching, etc.) to run within given parameters
  • Explain the principles of wireless and digital communication systems
  • Install and test wireless communication systems


Skills that enable students to function in a power generation station, midstream processing plant, or in a manufacturing facility as an operator, maintenance technician, or instrumentation and controls technician are skills that are in-demand.
