Program Details

Men and women working as field service, petroleum field service technicians complete highly technical tasks that require advanced training and knowledge. Due to the advancements in electro-mechanical systems, interdisciplinary fields are rapidly developing to address the design, operation and maintenance of products, and systems that require a working knowledge of both mechanical and electronic components.

A field-service technician installs and maintains oil field service equipment, instrumentation, controls, and electro-mechanical systems. After completing the field-service technician certificate, a student can choose to enter one of two certificate/degree tracks. The petroleum field service technician certificate and degree prepares a student for entry into the upstream development side of the oil and gas industry with an emphasis in drilling and the supporting systems needed for the completion of oil and gas wells.

Courses provide training in hydraulics/pneumatics, DC/AC circuits, and petroleum instrumentation. This certificate prepares a student to enter the industry as a technician in support of electro-mechanical, petroleum, and manufacturing technologies.
