                         Requested from department, but not yet available. Should be available in August 2008.

                                                               Program Context and General Comments
The Process Technology's greatest strength is its internship program, most of which is coordinated with APICC (Alaska
Process Industry Careers Consortium). Over 120 students have interned in the program over the past three to four years.
The executive director of APICC estimated that KPC PT graduates have at least a 94% hire rate -- and that doesn't count
graduates who have left the state and are likely working in a process tech field.

Shell Oil Company rated KPC's Process Technology program as the best of 42 programs in the nation. (This is
documented in APICC's meeting minutes).

http://www.apicc.org provides a wealth of information on industry audit standards and processes (as of May 28, 2008, the
site is under new construction. May pages have not yet been relinked or redesigned.)

This program lost both its AES and KRC full-time faculty members during the Spring 2007 semester. A new full-time
faculty was hired in August of 2007 who stayed only one semester. Another full-time temporary hire was made in January
of 2008. Several adjuncts or other fill-in full-time faculty tried to provide suitable data for this year's program assessment.
Next year's goal is to "fill the gaps" and have more complete data.

Although the results appear unusually high, this is an excellent program with excellent comments from industry internship host sites as well as from student interns. Some of these internship
comments are listed below this "results" section. The internships apply to all outcomes and are not discussed under individual outcomes.

                    ~student improved greatly in listening skills.
                    ~if you don't already do so, start including a procedure writing in APICC program.
                    ~good communication & interpersonal skills.
                    ~attendance was never an issue.
                    ~our organization was late to choose from the candidate pool. [our intern] has been a diamond of jewels -- how did other organizations
                    miss him? The school must have an unbelievable amount of talent that graduated this year.
                    ~This program is fully supported by our organization and future hires will definitely be taken. It is most healthy to be introducing these
                    people into the environment to help with their grounding and development.
                    ~student could use more well head training.
                    ~keep student's PPT for future training.
                    ~have had good luck with past hires from this organization
                    ~hire before the competition does.
                    ~can't think of any improvements to the program.

                    ~we have had good luck with the interns and have three former hires on the payroll.

                    ~keep this program running and stay the course of developing new people for the old field.
                    ~more studies with closer ties to slope activities.
                    ~it seems to be working out great. Keep doing what you're doing.

                    Comments made by Interns:
                    ~I think that even having minimal experience on the slope is going to be helpful in my remaining classes. It has also reinforced how much
                    more there is to learn.
                    ~better on-site training plan
                    ~[host site] is a professional company that will enhance any student's academic progress through the internship experience.
                    ~I feel that having attended my internship with [host site], I will become a valuable asset for any company I decide to work for.
                    ~Thanks for all the support and your efforts to make this internship a positive experience.
                    ~[faculty] was…diligent beyond priceless…his influence has affected my learning and development throughout the program along with the
                    internship.
                    ~[host site] is committed to the internship program and their employees believe in the process of training and developing fresh minds for
                    the oil patch.
                    ~[host site] had a very thorough orientation and was very well done.
                    ~I feel the interns would benefit from the full orientation rather than the shorter version.
                    ~the school, CIP, and [host site] were very helpful and made my experience absolutely positive.
                    ~it was exciting to be part of a hands-on learning experience. I was able to incorporate and apply information gained during the time spent
                    at school. I would strongly recommend the internship to all students. I absorbed more in the three months than in school because of the
                    hands-on.
                    ~not only did the internship help me enhance my academics, but the classes helped with better understanding of the full function of many
                    aspects of the process stream.
                    ~excellent program. I learned a huge amount in a short time.

                          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.

                          $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.
