PROFILE OF THE PROGRAMME
Automobile manufacturer Henry Ford set the pace for today's automation with his rule of the three S's: simplify, standardize, and specialize. This was the spark that ignited the intense manufacturing of the automobile. Today, all industrial manufacturing strives to abide by this same rule. Automation engineers, however, have yet one more ace up their sleeves, i.e. soul. By adding intelligence to a control system, you get an easy-to-use device that meets the needs of customers.
The engineers that graduate from our Degree Programme in Automation Engineering possess diverse expertise in machine and electric automation. They create intelligent machines/devices and production lines and automate them using modern methods. Our inter-technological programme comprises study modules in Automation, Electrical and Machine Design, Control Systems and Programming, and Robotics. Industrial Internet and Digital Manufacturing study modules offer methods for implementing automation of the future. Designs acquire substance through modelling, visualisation and simulation in our "virtual cave".
Jobs for professionals possessing numerous areas of expertise do not rest with just one employer. Our diverse training in the fields of automation, electricity and machinery opens up new job opportunities in a world that ever-increasingly depends on technology. For this reason, the job situation for automation engineers is excellent on both the national and international levels. Job titles include designer, technical expert, production manager, sales manager, purchasing manager, etc. Graduates may also work in teaching and as independent entrepreneurs.
Learning by doing is an age-old concept used to describe a method of in-depth learning. For this reason, teaching in the Degree Programme in Automation Engineering emphasises hands-on learning. This means that we combine theoretical information with practical skills for the working world in modern technology laboratories. Students experience great moments of insight doing a diverse range of assignments in our laboratories. The equipment and the software in our laboratories is the same used in the working world. This allows students to routinely solve practical problems and acquire the readiness they need to work in the field. Moreover, designing, automating and using machines and devices with a team is fun.
In addition to skills in problem solving, the working world requires that employees are able to work with others and commit themselves to life-long learning. For this reason, teaching involves much group work and working in pairs. There are also visits by experts in the field, various assignments, projects, visits to various companies and trade fairs, as well as practical training in authentic working environments.
