The term schedule above demonstrates a September intake program map. Students entering this program in January or May will follow a separate term schedule.

This accelerated program is designed to meet industry's future requirements for a skilled workforce. It provides the opportunity for a graduate with an Engineering Technology Degree, Engineering Degree, or Science Degree in Physics or Chemistry, to earn an advanced technical diploma in instrumentation and control within a shorter time frame than those registered in the Instrumentation & Control Engineering Technology program. The accelerated program is delivered in seven terms including three recommended co-op terms. The standard three-year Instrumentation & Control Engineering Technology program includes three co-op terms delivered in nine terms.

The program provides the theory and technical hands-on knowledge to operate and maintain control systems that incorporate digital, pneumatic and hydraulic processes. Instruments are used in controlling process variables such as composition temperature, pressure, level and flow quantities in a variety of industrial and commercial buildings.

Students enrolled in this program will train in Lambton College’s newly renovated Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technologies. The Centre offers state-of-practice technology laboratories and infrastructure to support learning and research in next-generation technologies in collaboration with industry.The program labs replicate real-life manufacturing environments and the technologies developed can easily be scaled-up and transferred to an actual operating unit. Moreover, students in this program will have the opportunity to work in relevant industries within the three co-op terms.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must possess an Engineering Technology Degree, Engineering Degree, or Science Degree in Physics or Chemistry.

Students who apply will be assessed individually and will be exempt from introductory courses based on their educational background.

Students are required to complete a series of technical writing workshops in order to progress into the second semester of study.

The admissions process is competitive and meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee admission.

Employment Opportunities

Instrumentation technologists are employed in petrochemical, pharmaceutical, energy generation, automobile assembly lines and food processing plants.
