Process Tech Team Takes Second in National Competition

A three-member team from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Community and Technical College recently took 
second place in the First National Simulation Troubleshooting Shootout.

The CTC student team was one of eight three-member teams from process technology programs, which teach 
operations skills required in petrochemical, power generation, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and 
related fields.

The three-round competition tested the teams’ troubleshooting skills: recognizing and resolving problems with 
various process-related scenarios using computer-based simulation software. A team from Kenai Peninsula 
College – Anchorage Extension site in Alaska won first place, while UAF and South Central Louisiana Technical 
College placed second andthird, respectively.

The UAF team consisted of students Jason Dahlke, Jay Ranson and Derrick Dieringer. The team was coached by 
Robert Hook.
