In this accredited and prestigious programme you will gain:
- Skills and know-how in the latest and developing technologies in instrumentation, process control, and industrial automation
- Practical guidance and feedback from industrial automation experts from around the world
- Knowledge from the extensive experience of expert lecturers, rather than from just theoretical information
- Global networking contacts in the industry
- A valuable and accredited Bachelor of Science (Industrial Automation Engineering)** qualification
There is a critical global shortage of automation, instrumentation and control engineers due mainly to restructuring and rapid growth of new industries and technologies. The respected International Society of Automation (ISA) estimated that at least 15,000 new automation engineers are needed annually in the US alone. Many industrial automation businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced automation engineers despite paying outstanding salaries.
The Bachelor of Science (Industrial Automation Engineering) perfectly addresses this gap in the Industrial Automation industry.
** A note regarding recognition of this programme in the Australian education system: EIT is the owner of this programme. The qualification is officially accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). EIT delivers this programme to students worldwide.
