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 instrumentation engineering programs featuring:
Building on the Associate of Applied Science degree in Electrical/Electronics, students in the Bachelor of Technology program gain in-depth knowledge and training in production processes, business acumen, and industry specific problem-solving skills. Students will be highly-skilled in safety applications, DC electronics and metrology, AC electronics and photonics, industrial electrical systems and motors, digital systems and microcontrollers, hydraulics and pneumatics, and design drafting.
The average annual salaries for entry level technicians is very competitive and experienced technicians can earn even more. 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 a Bachelor of Technology Degree from OSU Institute of Technology, possible careers include designing, specifying, troubleshooting, and managing instrumentations and controls systems in the areas of chemical processing, food processing, oil and gas production, manufacturing, energy production, and other highly technical fields.
Due to the high-level of skills that graduates from the program obtain, there are excellent opportunities for advancement into management positions as companies continue to install and upgrade high-tech production systems.
