Instrumentation student seeking career advancement
Koti Wisner is not only seeking an instrumentation degree because he enjoys a challenge, he also envisions the many opportunities the degree will open up for him.
“My understanding is that job placement is very profound with this degree,” Koti said. “With a degree, a few years of work experience and having good references, you can really do a lot of things, from industrial to agriculture. You can kind of write your own ticket. There are so many options.”
Actually, Koti, 26, is already encountering positive options first hand.
The Dickinson resident already has an associate degree in process technology and has enjoyed his time working as an operator. However, he was recently offered a position in the Instrument & Electrical (I&E) field and accepted. Through his company, he is now at Brazosport College working toward a degree in Instrumentation.
He hasn’t looked back since.
“This is a very state-of-the-art program here at Brazosport College,” Koti said. “The Pet Plant has a big variety of instruments to learn and train on. The classroom training here has directly enhanced my ability to learn in the field.”
Another huge benefit of Brazosport College’s instrumentation program is also having a choice of when to take the classes,” he said.
“The schedule here really helps out a lot,” he said. “There are daytime and nighttime classes, which opens up more opportunities for someone like myself who works full-time and wants to advance. There is a lot of flexibility.”
For someone interested in earning a degree or certificate in instrumentation, Koti is quick to point out that Brazosport College is a good choice to learn about this growing field.
“The instrumentation program here is a real representation of what is implemented in the field,” Koti said. “It’s almost a mirror image. For someone considering going back to school, this will really tie in to what you do in the field.”
