The demand for technicians, technologists and engineers in industrial automation, instrumentation and process control is growing rapidly. Why? Because when automation is introduced into industry, production becomes much more efficient and cost effective.

Consider the needs of employees:

  • They need training
  • They get sick
  • They receive wages
  • They go home at the end of each day    
  • They are more productive one day, but less so the following day             

Compare this with the needs of control systems - such as computers or robots - and consider the capacity machines have for hard work…….

But Industrial Automation experts ARE needed? The automated systems need to be designed, manufactured, commissioned, calibrated and maintained. 

If your students are already in engineering or dreaming of a career in it – they must consider a degree in Industrial Automation!

  • Bachelor of Science (Industrial Automation)
  • Master of Industrial Automation
