    Programme Description

    Automation Engineering involves the design, development and implementation of sensor and robotic systems for applications across a wide range of technological sectors. Modern engineering systems employ a broad spectrum of technologies, which when integrated provide for improved efficiency, quality and reliability. The combination of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Computer Technology, namely, Mechatronics, is core to this endeavour. This integrated approach is becoming increasingly important in modern technological environments. This programme is delivered from a multi-disiplinary perspective, thus equipping graduates for a diverse range of modern technological roles.

    Students will develop a range of skills in the design and implementation of automation solutions; from 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD, Solid-Modelling), sensor and instrumentation selection, programming of robotics to the management of the resulting systems. The study programme is designed to provide the student with the skills necessary to perform as a technologist in a range of industries. This flexibility opens up increased opportunites for graduate employment in a wide range of sectors irrespective of the service being provided or product being produced.

    The programme appropriately combines academic class-work and practical `´hands-on´´ work in DIT laboratories and workshops. Work placement in a suitable industrial environment is undertaken in Semester 2 of Stage 2.
