What is Instrumentation & Electrical Technology?
Many industrial firms now use automation practices which require highly programmed electronic equipment to do work that used to be performed by people. Due to their complicated nature, automotive devices frequently run into problems which electrical instrumentation technicians must solve. Electrical instrumentation technicians troubleshoot, repair and maintain the various parts needed to keep automotive machinery running smoothly and effectively. A degree or certificate is usually necessary to land work as an electrical instrumentation technician.
