How to Select an Instrumentation Engineering School

The instrumentation engineering curriculum can include learning skills in oil production, manufacturing, chemical processing and food processing as areas of study. Within these areas of study, the school may offer communications, problem-solving and technical skills for students looking for immediate employment upon graduation. Instrumentation engineers often work as part of a team and need to know several aspects of this industry, including how to work with others.

Consider the following when looking for instrumentation engineering schools:

  • Students may want to find a school with a wide engineering technology curriculum, offering at least 15 engineering options so the program is recognized by area business and government.
  • The school's labs should feature up-to-date computer technology to focus on electrical circuits, digital circuits, gas flow measurements, control systems and calibration.
  • Students should seek area internships for better employment opportunities.
