Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control Technicians apply, install, repair, calibrate and tune those measurement and control instruments that are used in industrial manufacturing processes. Students will learn to program computerized control, programmable logic controllers, and microprocessor instrumentation and install and maintain all of the field instruments that these computerized controllers rely on. These job skills are essential for employment in instrumentation.
The Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control Technician program stresses practical, hands-on experience to complement theory. This program will appeal to learners who are interested in working with mechanical and electronic equipment.
Half of the students' time is spent performing hands-on activities using the same equipment that is found in industry. The result is a very job-ready graduate, who can step into a position in one of many related fields, or transition into an apprenticeship at an advanced level with an industry sponsor.
Practical learning activities are housed in the world-class Spartan Controls Centre for Energy Education and Research. For more information about this phenomenal learning environment, please watch the video below:

Do you have credits from another BC/Yukon post-secondary school? Do you want to know if they transfer to courses here at BCIT? Check out BCIT's Transfer Equivalency Database to find out.
Graduates will receive 120 credits of technical training upon successful completion of the program. We are waiting for confirmation from ITABC regarding credits for the apprenticeship program. Graduates will ladder into the appropriate level of the Interprovincial Red Seal apprenticeship program based on the ITABC credits.
Graduates of the Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control Technician program will be well positioned to gain employment as technicians in the instrumentation and control field across diverse industries such as oil and gas, pulp and paper, mining, food processing, and ship building, among others.
