What is Bachelor Engineering Tec (Ord) Control and Automation Systems?

This programme educates students for careers in Ireland's electrical power, automation, robotics, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries. Students will develop the skills necessary to analyse complex electrical and electronic circuits and power systems. In addition they will acquire computing skills, ranging from ECDL to advanced level programming in control and automation systems. A further important feature of the programme is that of building the students communication, professional development and management skills. In the final year all students complete their studies by engaging in a substantial engineering project in their chosen specialist field. In the first year the student is introduced to a broad range of foundation courses that underpin modern Electrical Engineering. At the start of the second year the student is offered the choice of one of two streams in either Control and Automation Systems or Electrical Energy Systems. In addition there is a number of option courses available to allow the student broaden his/her knowledge base. Electrical Energy Systems: techniques used and the equipment required for the efficient generation, transmission and use of electricity. Control and Automation Systems: design and programme robotic production lines and other automated systems.
