Bachelor of Electrical Eng-Industrial Automation

  • About

    The Industrial Automation program was the second-degree program to be offered in the Faculty of Engineering – after the Electrical Engineering program. It was established to meet the urgent needs of the local and regional market for engineers in Industrial Automation and control.
    In particular, the program was designed to equip the students with essential skills related to modern industrial automation systems and control and to provide the students with hands-on experience and knowledge for designing installing, and maintaining the equipment and carrying out any tasks that develop their performance. In essence, the graduate will acquire sufficient knowledge in several types of control systems in several types of production.
    To deliver such a program the department is staffed with a number of competent teaching staff who have high qualifications and experience in the field of Industrial Automation. Many of our staff are also active researchers and some have industrial experience in the field of Industrial Automation.
    In addition to the courses which make up the program of Industrial Automation the section also runs a number of courses to support other Engineering programs thus contributing to the development of the Faculty of Engineering as a whole. The department also houses a number of high-tech labs which are used for this and other programs.
