Industrial Automation deals about how to control plants, factories, buildings, energy production and distribution, vehicles, robots and other embedded systems through computer and real-time communication neworks.

Industrial Automation encompasses the whole control hierarchy from sensors, motors, programmable controllers, communication networks, operator visualisation, trends, archiving and up to manufacturing execution systems and enterprise resource management.

Industrial Automation considers especially real-time behaviour, safety, reliability and availability.

This course is application-oriented and does not require previous knowledge in control theory.
It complements communication systems courses with a focus on industrial application. It includes a workshop giving hands-on experience and a factory visit.

This course prepares the engineer for its future career in automation companies,  public utilities,  food & drugs, logistics, etc..
