Petroleum Production Technology (COC) Automation & Control

Required credits for the COC: 15 or less


The Automation and Control Technician path is composed of two different certificates: Certificate of Completion (COC) and the Program Certificate (PC). Sixteen additional credit hours of coursework beyond the COC are required. All the courses completed in the COC are part of the PC. Coursework will be completed in SCADA fundamentals, networks and wiring, process control, control system installation, and troubleshooting. CO-OP field experience is a big part of the curricula activities for students. In the CO-OP course students go to sponsoring company facilities in the area and "shadow" experienced field technicians observing first-hand the job responsibilities and duties. Students can also gain actual on-the-job skill training and experience through internships. The internships are usually done in the summer following the CO-OP.
