Industrial Automation is rapidly growing especially within the Power sector, Automobile, Oil and gas, Manufacturing, Mining etc. Process Automation provides the technology to control and monitor the process in industrial plants using concepts such as feedback, cascade, feed forward and advanced process control. According to an estimate provided by the International Society of Automation (ISA), 15,000 fresh automation engineers are required annually in the United States. This Industrial Automation course is designed to empower students with the foundation and intermediate level of knowledge that will help them to understand the three key modules of Industrial Automation: PLC, SCADA, and DCS.
Industrial robotics, controls and automated systems have been in general use in the manufacturing industry since the early 1980s. These industrial automation systems have seen wide acceptance in high-volume manufacturing for many years. As systems mature, they become cost effective for low-volume production in the local manufacturing sector. The integration of automation and industrial control sytems, architectures and protocols has created a specific need to train industrial electrical and instrumentation staff on the development and maintenance of industrial automation systems.
