BAAS - Automation




Automation BAAS Degree Program

As the energy industry continues to expand in the oil rich Permian Basin, there is a consistent need for employees who are formally trained in instrumentation, automation, engineering, and programming. Most companies in the Permian Basin are moving to, or already have existing, automation systems that span hundreds of miles. With this move to automated systems, there is a consistent need for highly skilled workers to fill the automation positions. The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences Degree in Automation prepares graduates for design, development, implementation, and support of the software and equipment in control systems. Potential job opportunities for graduates include: automation, control engineering, robotics, automated systems, systems calibration, systems troubleshooting, quality engineering, and maintenance. The job need from the oil and gas industry includes positions such as electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, automation supervisors, and senior engineers for equipment. These types of positions will continue to be prolific as the industry continues to expand in the Permian Basin.

The first cohort of the BAAS in Automation program will begin in the Fall, 2019 semester. Due to the competitiveness of the program, the BAAS in Automation includes a selective entry process.
