Instrumentation and Process Control Technician

Students in Francis Tuttle’s Advanced Manufacturing Program develop integrated skills in the fields of machining, welding, instrumentation and automation, electrical, electronics, fluid power, mechanical systems, and programmable logic control. These skills have traditionally been developed in separate, stand-alone training programs; however, modern manufacturing processes have created a demand for multi-skilled workers who have strong abilities in more than one field.
