Agricultural/Biofuels Process Technology

Agricultural/Biofuels Process TechnologyEthanol plants utilize fermentation processes to produce ethanol from nutrients derived from corn. The Agricultural & Biofuels Process Technology program will teach you to apply scientific principles and technical skills in support of ethanol fermentation plant processes. You will receive hands–on training, and study electrical and electronics theory, digital fundamentals, process control, instrumentation, high level equipment maintenance and analysis, and bioprocess laboratory techniques. As a graduate, you will be prepared to work as an ethanol plant technician operating scientific equipment that’s used in ethanol fermentation, bio–renewable fuel production, and distillation processes.
