To provide the learner with the skills needed to successfully design, develop and integrate a SCADA solution in industry. Having successfully completed this module, the learner will be able to : 

  1. Understand and identify the requirements needed to provide a solution to any industrial SCADA requirment.
  2. Design and visulaise a solution for SCADA devlop from engineering information provided.
  3. Integrate the use of OPC server client communication in a project.
  4. Implement the logging of data to SQL server.
  5. Establish the communication protocols used for industrial solutions.
  6. Examine batch solutions in industry. 
  7. Relate the S88 standard which defines the hierarchical recipe management and process segmentation frameworks that separate products from the processes that make them.
  8. Utilise the web client utility for SCADA software.

What are the entry requirements?

It is expected that participants registering for this module will have already completed the PLC Systems and Advanced PLC Systems modules, and/or will have significant prior working knowledge of PLC Systems. Participants taking this module as part of the Bachelor of Engineering in Manufacturing Technology or the Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Technology must meet the entry requiremments outlined on the relevant course pages. 

ENGLISH LANGUAGE: Applicants who do nto have English as their first language must ensure they satisfy English Language requirements. For entry to undergraduate courses, a minimum score of 5.5 in an IELTS exam is required. For postgraduate courses, a minimum of 6.0 is required. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure their English proficiency meets these requirements.

12 weeks, 3 hours per week.

Thursday evenings from 7.00pm to 10.00pm (Classroom)

Commencing Thursday 8th September 2022

What will the time committement be?

Each 5 credits will normally equate to approximately 100 Total Learning Hours. Total Learning Hours includes the time you spend in class (lectures, tutorials, practical elements) and the time you spend completing work outside of college. The balance between these two varies by discipline, and by level of study. You should bear in mind that the workload will increase at particular times e.g. when assignements are due. 


Each taught module has a programme of continuous assessment worth 50% and a final exam worth 50%. It is necessary to pass both elements to achieve an award in the module. 


Participants not registered on the Degree may request an LIT Subject Certificate (Level 7, 5 Credits) on successful completion of the module. Students registered for the Degree will receive ECTS credits for each group of modules successfully completed. Accumulation of 60 credits will lead to the Degree Award. 

NOTE: This module may be completed as a stand-alone course, or it may be completed by eligible participants for credit towards the award of Bachelor of Engineering in Manufacturing Technology (Level 7) or Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Technology (Level 7).
