Bismarck State College's on-campus and online Instrumentation & Control program provides the student with the basic knowledge needed for an entry level position as an instrument technician.  The program combines theory and hands-on training with state-of-the-art instruments, working processes and computerized control systems.  Students learn to install, test, calibrate and maintain instruments that measure, indicate and control variables such as pressure, flow, level, density, temperature, force, vibration and chemical composition. Students apply math concepts, physics concepts and industry standards to realistic situations encountered on the job. Additional instruction includes updating system documentation and building or modifying specialized systems to solve problems in measurement and control.
