Electronic Instrumentation Technology is the study of using specialized instruments to measure and control critical processes found in automated processes. Parameters to be measured and controlled include temperature, pressure, flow, level, analytical, and environmental processes that are vital to every production facility.
EIT technicians are vital to the successful operation of all automated facilities including: power production, pulp and paper, chemical manufacturing, environmental control agencies, petroleum refineries and many others.
The successful Electronic Instrumentation Technician is responsible for selecting, installing, calibrating, and maintaining instrumentation used throughout industry. The technician is also responsible for the configuration and programming required for systems to operate reliably and efficiently with minimal downtime.
