Overview

There is a global shortage of automation, instrumentation, and control engineers due mainly to restructuring and rapid growth of new industries and technologies.

The Industrial Automation Engineering course at the Engineering Institute of Technology  perfectly addresses this gap in the industrial automation industry. The program’s twelve core units and project thesis provide you with the practical knowledge and skills required. Students with a background in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control, or industrial computer systems engineering can benefit from this program.

The content has been carefully designed to provide you with relevant concepts and the tools required in today’s fast-moving work environment. For example, the unit on power engineering covers major equipment and technologies used in power systems, including power generation, transmission, and distribution networks.

Our Programmable Logic Controllers unit covers in-depth principles of operation of PLCs, networking, distributed controllers, and program control strategies. The unit on industrial process control systems combines the process identification and feedback control design with a broad understanding of the hardware, system architectures, and software techniques widely used to evaluate and implement complex control solutions.

Our industrial instrumentation unit identifies key features of widely used measurement techniques and transducers combined with microprocessor devices to create robust and reliable industrial instruments. Undertaking process engineering will enable you to evaluate and apply complex process calculations through the application of control principles.

Potential job roles include engineering and management positions in the following areas of expertise:

  • Process control, commissioning and production management
  • Plant, factory and building automation
  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Distributed Control Systems (DCSs) and SCADA
  • Industrial design and consultation
  • Supply chain management, quality assurance, and sales
  • Operations, maintenance, field services, and technical support
  • Controls, instrumentation, and robotics
  • Industrial project management and business development
