Instrumentation & Electrical Associates of Applied Science Degree

Frank Phillips College is home to the largest training facility for petrochemical and refining operations in the Texas Panhandle. Frank Phillips College offers certificates in instrumentation, electrical, pump & engine and process tech fields. Students learn theory and practical skills in electronics, instrumentation, mechanical, and control at Borger, Dalhart, or Perryton sites. Students can earn a certificate in instrumentation, electrical, pump & engine, and process tech. Students will be eligible to work when they have completed one of these certificates. Students taking the instrumentation and electrical program will be eligible to receive an associate of applied science degree after completing 60 semester hours of course work.

Frank Phillips College workforce programs include courses offered at the FPC Center for Access & Innovation building located at 901 Opal Street in Borger, TX. For more information on any of the following classes, call 806-457-4200, ext. 776.

Admission to the Program
The instrumentation and electrical program accepts students in fall, spring, and summer semesters. Each program has a student-to-faculty ratio of less than 25:1, and admission is offered to students who have completed all admission requirements on a first-come, first-serve basis. When the program has enrolled students to capacity, the Director will create a wait list for students who may be admitted if space permits.

Careers in Instrumentation and Electrical 
The Texas Panhandle is the home for some of the largest petrochemical and refining operations. The demand for skilled instrumentation, electrical, process technicians and pump and engine technicians continues to grow. Our graduates enter the workforce with the equivalent of years of on-the-job experience. Companies continually hire students straight out of our program.

AAS Instrumentation & Electrical

The program is designed to develop technical knowledge regarding electrical systems and instrumentation to prepare students to enter careers as I&E Technicians in a variety of industries. 

Instrumentation Technology Certificate

Instrumentation students will install, maintain and calibrate devices used in the automation of industrial processes. These devices measure and control the pressure, temperature, level and flow of processes used in automated manufacturing and production.

Electrical Technology Certificate

Electrical students will learn blueprint reading, wiring, installing, and testing electrical systems; as well as troubleshooting, testing, fixing and upgrading already installed, improperly functioning, electrical systems.

Process Technology Certificate

Prepares students to become plant operator responsible for equipment, the hazards of the chemicals, and the chemistry and physics involved in process technology. Teaches students to read piping and instrumentation diagrams, identify equipment, troubleshoot equipment, and operate simulators.

Pump and Engine Technology

Prepares students with the mechanical skills to work on the motors and pumps used in oil, gas, and other industry. Teaches students to identify different types of equipment, operations, and troubleshooting skills needed to become a highly-trained pump and engine technician.
