Course summary

Gain the advanced knowledge necessary to devise innovative solutions and systems in the broad field of automation and control

Overview

Automation and control are important aspects of modern manufacturing and utility supply. Many manufacturing assembly lines and processes utilise programmable control systems.

It is essential to equip the prospective engineer in this field with the appropriate theoretical and practical knowledge. This course will extend your skills across essential areas in the field of automation and control.

You’ll use your existing knowledge of engineering theory and practice as the base to build new skills in this field such as embedded systems and control system design.

Using specialist equipment in our dedicated laboratories, you’ll learn to use Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, the industry standard for the development of effective control systems.

Course details

The course is accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET). Combined with a suitable accredited undergraduate degree, the MSc degree would then satisfy the academic requirements of the UK Engineering Council for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

How you’ll be taught

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars and also through practical hands on experience using relevant laboratory equipment.
