The educational program "Automation of technological processes and productions" is focused on the graduation of highly qualified specialists in the field of professional activity which is related to the automation of existing and the creation of new automated production facilities, automation tools, the use of algorithmic, hardware and software that ensure the release of competitive products, its product life cycle, and its quality, improving the structures and processes of industrial enterprises within the framework of a single information space.
The objects of professional activities graduates are production, automatic and automated systems, production diagnostics, their mathematical, software, information, and technical support, as well as methods and tools for their design, manufacture, debugging, production testing, and scientific research.
Skills and competency
Scientific technician progress is involved in all areas of activity. The creation of processes and industries without or with partial participation of humans has become commonplace in all areas. Distinguish between different types and areas of automation - from automatic tanks, allowing you to save water in everyday life, to the most complex automated control systems for technological processes. Automation is inseparable from control since the need for automation is dictated by the control of the process or production. Hence the frequently used terms "automatic", "automated" or "manual" control. Automation is becoming especially important in the energy sector since complex systems generally can`t operate without automation of control, and its role will only increase in the future.
The modern development of power engineering and production led to the predominance of high-power technological processes with difficult complexes of energy and material flows and with high requirements for product quality, personnel safety, equipment safety, and environmental impact, which required the creation of more advanced control systems. The introduction of information technology, intelligent distributed control systems, and industrial robots makes it possible to create high-performance high-quality installations, modern workshops, and factories that are attractive for the employment of specialists. Intellectualization and automation of control have become powerful technical, economic, and social factors, and will determine the development of technology and technology.
Graduate in the field of training "Automation of technological processes and productions" can perform the following professional activities:
Design and engineering activities. Formulation of project goals, building the structure of their relationships, development of projects for the automation of processes and production; development of a functional, logical, and technical organization of automation, automated systems, their technical, algorithmic, and software based on modern design tools and technologies; development of technical documentation for automation and control systems.
