Bachelor of Engineering (Instrumentation, Control and Automation) Honours

Instrumentation control and automation engineering is the integration of electrical, electronic and computing engineering, with control engineering for the development of intelligent systems to automate monitoring, processing, and production. The first year of this course includes a set of eight units that are common across all engineering honours courses. This allows students the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the various engineering disciplines on offer and the flexibility, if desired, to switch to another engineering discipline/course without penalty after the first year of study. Areas of study within instrumentation control and automation include analog and digital electronics, computer-aided design and manufacturing, signal analysis, communication and networking, electrical machines, sensor technology, process control, automation, robotics, system design and development, and project management. Graduates of the course will be conversant in electrical and electronic engineering and have specialist skills in design, development and management of advanced control and automation systems. The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice, and along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem-solving, teamwork and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects.
