    What is the programme about?
    The Industrial Automation and Robotic Systems programme equips graduates with the necessary skills to troubleshoot, maintain, install and design automated production systems required for high-tech manufacturing industries. There is a large demand for such graduates, since the trend over the last decade is to move labour intensive production operations to lower wage economies. This trend has ultimately meant that remaining manufacturing operations within Ireland demand highly automated production systems and require highly skilled graduates to maintain them.

    This three year Bachelor of Engineering Level 7 programme covers all the technologies used in modern manufacturing Automation and Robotic systems. It covers a wide range of areas including electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical systems, motion control and robotic systems, instrumentation systems, as well as PLC and SCADA programming.

    The programme contains approximately 50% theoretical content with 50% dedicated to practical hands-on learning.

    Who is the programme suited to?
    Automation and Robotics is a fascinating area of study since it covers a wide range of engineering technologies. If you are interested in how things work, have a logical mind and have an interest in using modern technology to control electrical-mechanical equipment then you will enjoy and have the capacity to enjoy a successful career in this area.

    Top 3 Reasons
    1. There is a very broad range of engineering technologies covered in this programme, including: Electrical, Electronic, Programming & Control, and more! The broad range of technologies covered really makes the course very interesting.

    2. At least 50% of this programme is practical, giving you the hands-on experience, not just the theory.

    3. Excellent employment prospects. Over the last few years we have had 100% employment from this course.
