The Greater Houston Partnership reported that Houston is the “energy capital of the world.”

“The Texas Gulf Coast is home to thousands of producers in various chemical process industries. Those companies provide great salaries for skills in high demand in the community that Lone Star College serves,” said Darrell Mayon, LSC process technology and instrumentation technology program director.

The LSC-Process Technology Center meets the burgeoning demand through its process technology and instrumentation technology programs. Process technology educates students on various processes to produce intermediate or final products from raw materials, such as crude oil, petrochemicals, specialty chemicals, plastic materials, and refinery products. Instrumentation technology trains students to maintain, calibrate, troubleshoot, repair, and replace process instruments.

Graduates are qualified to work in refineries, petrochemical, plastics, power generation, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals industries.
