RDC launches new Instrumentation Engineering Technology Diploma
Launch and information event to be held November 22
Red Deer College is proud to expand opportunities for learners in the region with the new Instrumentation Engineering Technology Diploma, which will be offered starting in September 2017.
“We’re very excited to offer this new program, which has been developed in collaboration with local industry stakeholders,” says Joel Gingrich, Dean, School of Trades and Technologies. “It will provide students with a solid foundation in design, installation and maintenance of industrial control systems for future employment in this sought-after industry.”
The Instrumentation Engineering Technology program offers theoretical and hands-on applications in a wide range of fundamental courses, as well as courses tailored to help students develop skillsets employers require. “The program will provide direct connections between students and future employers through professional practice and capstone courses,” Gingrich explains. “Plus, graduates will be eligible for recognition towards Instrument Technician Journeyperson certification with Apprenticeship and Industry Training.”
“This new two-year diploma program is a great addition to the strong mix of programs already available at Red Deer College,” says Dr. Paulette Hanna, Vice President Academic. “We’re always committed to developing and delivering programs that are relevant and applicable to the needs of central Alberta, and the Instrumentation Engineering Technology Diploma is a wonderful example of this.”
An official launch and information event for the Instrumentation Engineering Technology Diploma will take place on November 22. This event is open to the public and to the media, and it will begin with a short program followed by a drop-in format, giving attendees the chance to connect with faculty and staff to learn more about the new diploma program.
