    • a) Identify ISA symbols and interpret basic flow sheets layout principles.

    • b) Exhibit comprehension of instrumentation/flow diagram relationships and flow sheet/plot plans/piping/interrelationship.

    • c) Prepare flow sheets (process and mechanical) diagrams.

    • d) Understand the Instrumentation used in industry today.

    • e) Understand basic terminology and identify the ISA process legends.

    • f) Demonstrate the proper knowledge in the application of instrumentation to P&ID for control systems.

    • g) Understand process flow diagrams and converting them into a P&ID.

    • h) Understanding cost evaluation, budgeting and record keeping as part of a design process.

    • i) Recognizing basic instrumentation symbols and their functions form written descriptions.

    • j) Enhanced background and development of piping instrument diagrams.

  • 2. SKILLS:

    • 1. Produce with reasonable accuracy and efficiency a set of working drawings for process instrumentation.

    • 2. Exhibit a general comprehension of the instrumentation of a plant function and operation.

    • 3. Exhibit skills of an entry level of an Instrument Drafter.


    The course will consist of Study Guide and textbook reading assignments, lectures, class exercises, and drafting

    lab assignments. The student is expected to read and study the text before the lecture on the unit.

    Study Guide

    Science Engineering and Technology 10141 Cash Rd, Stafford, Texas 77477

    units will be assigned either as homework or class work, at the instructor's option. (Refer to the "Course Outline & Assignment" document for scheduled weekly activities Refer to the "Drafting Equipment & Supplies" list for drafting equipment requirements.) The student should bring the Study Guide, textbook, and drafting instruments every day, unless otherwise instructed.


    The Department of Labor has identified skill sets that U.S. employers want most in entry level employees. It is our commitment to prepare every student with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today’s dynamic environment. Toward this end the following skills will be included in this course:

    Decision making: specifies goals and constraints, generates alternatives, considers risks and chooses best alternative.

    Organize/maintain information: Organizes, processes, and maintains written or computerized records and other forms of information in a systematic fashion.

    Arithmetic: performs basic computations; uses basic numerical concepts such as whole numbers and percentages in practical solutions, makes reasonable estimates of arithmetic results without a calculator and uses tables, graphs, diagrams, and charts to obtain and convey quantitative information.

    Work with teams: work cooperatively with others and contribute to groups with ideas, suggestions, and effort.

    Reading: locate, understand, and interpret written information in documents, manuals, graphs, and schedules to perform tasks.

    Sociability: demonstrate understanding, friendliness, adaptability, empathy and politeness in new and ongoing settings.


    The student will be presented with problems in which they must establish their objective and organize and maintain appropriate documentation and dimensioned drawing details in achieving their objective.

    GRADING: Exams and assignments will be given during the semester that will determine how successful the student is mastering the course material and basic skills. If a student is having limited success at mastering the course material, he/she must contact the instructor for assistance.

    STUDENT ASSIGNMENTS: Drawing and problem assignments from some chapters will be assigned to enhance the learning of the Instrumentation Drafting. Each assignment will stress the basic skills that a student must have to gain proficiency in the use of problems. The assignment will enhance the student ability to produce a clear and accurate drawings.

    LATE ASSIGNMENT POLICY: Students are encouraged to turn assignments in on time if at all possible. This allows the instructor to grade the work, return it to the student and the student use the feedback as a learning tool.

    MAKE8UP TEST/PROJECT POLICY: NO make up test is given for any exams or quizzes and the final examination.

    Any student with a documented disability (e.g. physical, learning, psychiatric, vision, hearing, ect) who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact the Disability Support Services Office (DSSO) of their

    respective college at the beginning of each semester. Faculty is authorized to provide only the accommodation(s) requested by the DSSO. For information and services at HCC Southwest, contact: DR. Becky Hauri, ADA Counselor, at 713.718.7910.

    CLASS ATTENDANCE: You are expected to attend all lecture classes and labs. You are also responsible for all materials covered in either lecture or lab. In the case of your absence, you must contact the instructor to obtain make up assignments or arrange make up testing, either of which can be distributed at the instructor's discretion. Class attendance is checked daily.

    The instructor has the authority to drop you from the class for excessive absences, that is, you may be dropped from a course after accumulating absences in excess of 12.5 percent of the total hours of instruction (lecture and lab).

    For example: A 3 credit hour lecture class meeting 3 hours per week 2 absences (6 hrs.) is 12.5% of the class. A 3 credit hour lecture/lab class meeting six hours per week 2 absences (12 hrs.) is 12.5% of the class.

    Administrative drops are at the discretion of the instructor. It is your responsibility to drop a course, should you choose not to complete it. Failure to withdraw officially will result in you receiving a grade of an “F" in the course.

    Note: Although it is your responsibility to officially withdraw from a course, it is always a good idea to discuss any attendance problems with your instructor first. Class attendance is very important, but your instructor may be able to help you catch up. If you become ill or know you are going to miss class for some reason, tell your instructor as soon as possible.

    Departments and programs governed by accreditation or certification standards may have different attendance policies.

    SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY: Students are responsible for conducting themselves with honor and integrity in fulfilling course requirements. College System Officials may initiate penalties and/or disciplinary proceedings against a student accused of scholastic dishonesty. "Scholastic dishonesty" includes, but is not limited to, cheating on a test, plagiarism, and collusion.

    "Cheating" on a test includes:

    Copying from another student's test paper;

    Using materials during a test that are not authorized by the person giving the test;

    Collaborating with another student during a test without authority;

    Knowingly using, buying, selling, stealing, transporting, or soliciting in whole or part the contents of an un administered test;

    Bribing another person to obtain a test that is to be administered.

    "Plagiarism" means the misuse of another's work and the deliberate incorporation of that work into work you offer for credit. "Collusion" means the unauthorized collaboration with another person in preparing work offered for credit.

    Determination of scholastic dishonesty will be at the discretion of the instructor. Reference the following web link for additional information: http://www.hccs.cc.tx.us/handbookiStudentP.htm
