Course delivery details

Our master’s degrees take two years to complete. We deliver our online master’s degrees on a part-time intensive basis. Part-time students are expected to spend approximately 20 hours per week learning the program material and completing assessments. This includes attending tutorials.

Industrial Automation Introduction provides the fundamental knowledge that is essential in the automation area. Power Engineering covers major equipment and technologies used in power systems, including power generation, transmission, and distribution networks. Programmable Logic Controllers covers in-depth principles of operation of programmable controllers, networking, distributed controllers, and program control strategies. Industrial Process Control Systems combines the process identification and feedback control design with a broad understanding of the hardware, system architectures, and software techniques widely used to evaluate and implement complex control solutions.

Furthermore, Industrial Instrumentation identifies key features of widely used measurement techniques and transducers combined with microprocessor devices to create robust and reliable industrial instruments. Industrial Data Communications provides the requisite knowledge to manage modern field buses and industrial wireless systems.

Safety Instrumented Systems introduces the common safety philosophy of hazard identification, risk management, and risk-based design of protection methods and functional safety systems. SCADA and DCS cover hardware and software systems, evaluation of typical DCS and SCADA systems, and configuration of DCS controllers. Advanced Process Control covers advanced control systems, algorithms, and applications. Machine Learning for Industrial Automation provides the intelligent control basics in the automation area.

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 subjects. 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.

Continuing Studies

Potential job roles include engineering and management positions in the following areas of expertise:

  • Process control, commissioning and production management
