Systems Based Electronics provides the instruction necessary for students to gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities to monitor instrumentation and controls for a variety of processes that include but are not limited to energy or power generation and petroleum refining.
You’ll have opportunities to work as an instrumentation and controls technician in a number of fields including:
- Chemical plants
- Petroleum refineries
- Food processing plants
- Water and air treatment plants
- Power plants
Degree Options and Requirements
The program of study consists of a fifteen hour core of systems-based electronics and thirty hours of targeted instruction designed to provide specialized skills in Instrumentation and Controls Technology.
This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to 4-year college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a MGCCC advisor.
All students completing a career or technical program must complete either the MS-CPAS (Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System) or an MGCCC Board- approved Technical Skills Attainment assessment where applicable. Students should see an advisor for further details.
