This is a three year program and is aimed at providing competent technicians in the fields of engineering installation, repair and maintenance of process control systems in manufacturing environments, design and program process controls, and human – machine interface. The graduates can fit-in in small to large scale industrial operations such as the mining and petroleum sectors.
Students of the Diploma in Instrumentation Technology are required to complete a minimum of eighty units of study. This excludes the extra credits gained by taking the elective units. By covering the required number of units in every year level a semester, it would take participants two years to complete the program. Elective units are offered in Workshop / Laboratory Management and Entrepreneurship.
In addition to the intensive training to mould a true Bosconian, In-Plant Training (IPT) is included in the Diploma Program. This is to give the students a firsthand experience in the world of actual work by being indentured in the different companies around the National Capital District. On a case-to-case basis, students are allowed to go for their IPT outside of Port Moresby especially if they need to do their industry experience in their sponsoring companies.
