Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Control, Instrumentation & Automation) involves wide range areas in discussing methods of production or products and equipment. Control engineering, instrumentation, and automation is a combination of three areas, namely, Control Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering and Automation Engineering. The combination of these three areas will result in a complex system. It includes analysis and design of control systems, robotics, and exposure to the FMS system and automation.
This course would take four (4) years minimum and consist of at least 138 credit hours.
This course will be conducted with approximately 80% of contact hours that emphasize theory and the remainder 20% meeting hour, involving the practical / laboratory experiments, computer-aided learning, and Problem Based Learning (PBL). It also encourages active and cooperative learning activities other than carrying out assignments, job workshops, industrial training and one final year project based on the industrial problem.
