One of my biggest challenges is finding enough qualified people to fill our operations and technician positions. Fortunately, at OSU Institute of Technology, students are receiving the training Chevron needs for its workforce.
Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology boasts one of the industry’s premier electrical/electronics engineering programs featuring:
Develop a broad understanding of production processes, business acumen and industry specific problem-solving skills. Students will receive in-depth instruction in safety applications, DC electronics and metrology, AC electronics and photonics, industrial electrical systems and motors, digital systems and microcontrollers, hydraulics and pneumatics and basic design drafting.
The annual salaries for entry level technicians range from approximately $45,000 to $55,000. Experienced technicians can earn yearly salaries of over $80,000. Paid internships are also a required program component and typically pay between $15 and $20 per hour, so that students can begin earning even before graduation!
With 100% job placement among graduates who earn an Associate in Applied Science degree from OSU Institute of Technology, possible careers include control systems technicians, instrumentation/automation technicians, electrical/electronic maintenance technicians, and instrumentation technicians.
Students that complete the Electrical/Electronics specialty have the option of continuing their education into the Bachelor of Technology degree in Instrumentation Engineering Technology. Once a graduate enters the workforce, the opportunities for advancement are endless.
