Course Description

Many of the emerging products and machine systems on the market now come with a high level of automation, embedded with control systems that integrate information and communications technology, intelligent mechano-electronic sensors, micro-processor controllers, and powerful deduction algorithms and integrate a diverse range of parameter sensors. In Automation Engineering, the integrations of applications of applied mathematics, information technology, computer engineering, electrical and electronics engineering into mechanical systems design, and control to create these autonomous or semiautonomous intelligent mechanical systems are explored, and equip the student with the necessary technical skills to support automated systems.


Course Objectives

In this course, the objective is to provide the skills necessary to support, design and generate an automated or semi-automated unit system that can be integrated into a wider process of other existing or future automated systems. This also aims to produce a problems solving engineer using a process-centric pedagogical approach that puts the student hands-on in the practical applications of the theories covered, and with an individual centred research approach to solving set problems.
