  The mission of the Process Technology program is to provide quality degree and upgrade education and training that will enable individuals to
          obtain employment in the industries that use and control mechanical, physical, orchaemical processes to produce a product.

                                                                              Program Context and General Comments
                                               This report is based on KPC's AAS Process Technology AY10 Assessment Plan.

In Spring 2010, ExxonMobil training representatives from around the world visited the KPC PRT program, touring the facilities and talking to faculty
over two days. ExxonMobil representatives concluded that KPC's PRT program is one of the best in the nation.

   Right now, KPC keeps all of its outcomes in one site at the top of the academics degree programs Web page. Starting in Fall of 2010 with the
                      redesign of the KPC Web site, each program's outcomes will be on individual program's Web pages.

                          In August 2006, Kenai Peninsula embarked on an intensive visioning process in all aspects. During the past two years, KPC has focused on implementing as many of those visions
                          as possible, and making specific recommendations for those that could not be accomplished within two years.

      Comments            The last couple of years, a extensive effort and resources were put in to upgrading the various labs related to the IPI, PT, & CE programs, including AY 07-08. In the absence of
                          the regular full-time IPI faculty member this year (Allen Houtz, on his sabbatical) a summary of the labs for these programs has been provided rather than a list of
                          recommendations for next year. Allen Houtz will evaluate the effectiveness of these upgrades and provide further comments or recommendations when he returns from sabbatical
                          in August 2008.

                          a) Simtronics operations simulation and training software- very accurate depiction of operations consoles for approximately 20 different industrial processes. Students can learn
                          operations procedures, emergency procedures, characteristics and behavior of challenging operations environments, and become familiar with user interfaces and controls as
                          typically used on the job. Used primarily in PRT, but also in limited way in the IPI program.
                          b) MathCad/VisSim systems analysis and modeling software. Used to model, experiment with and analyze various systems for IPI control systems courses.
                          c) ControlStation/LoopPro control systems modeling and analysis software. to model, experiment with and analyze industrial processes for IPI control systems courses.

    and procedures.       industrial input/output hardware and computer workstations for programming the controllers, and acting as operator interface stations. These stations amount to approximately
                          $4.5K each, without the associated installation, network cabling and configuration costs (much of this was done by dept faculty or in class by student faculty teams). These
                          industrial controllers are the way essentially all industrial process control is accomplished today - ”SCADA”, from oil pipelines to petrochemical plants, to automobile manufacturing.
                          To my knowledge, KRC has the most advanced and capable lab of this type in Alaska. This will give our IPI students extremely valuable knowledge and credentials as they join
                          industries which are quickly transitioning to this type of control. This environment can also be used to augment the PRT program.

                          transmitters and actuators(which are still found everywhere in industry) to modern electronic systems are available, and are studied.
