Course description

Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation)

The Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) perfectly addresses this gap in the Industrial Automation industry. The program's twelve core units, and project thesis, provide you with the practical knowledge and skills required. Students with a background in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control, or industrial computer systems engineering can benefit from this program.

The Project Thesis, as the capstone of the course, requires a high level of personal autonomy and accountability, and reinforces the knowledge and skill base developed in the preceding units. As a significant research component of the course, this project will facilitate research, critical evaluation and the application of knowledge and skills with creativity and initiative, enabling students to critique current professional practice in the industrial automation industry.
