Study Programme in Automation Engineering, 180 cr

Automatization is all around - from clever operating systems for our indoor environment to industrial production processes. Automatization makes our everyday life simpler by coordinating different technical systems such as electronics, IT, human/machine and economy and environment.

Automatization for efficient solutions

As an automation engineer, you are a part of the future. You work with people as well as with the latest technology in order to develop new efficient solutions.

Direct the future

A good automation process must be based on interplay and be in balance with both humans and technology. As an automation engineer you will learn to identify and chart different technical systems, develop operating, control and surveillance systems. With the foundation in electronics you will learn such things as electrical engineering, programming PLC, handling built-in systems and robotics as well as using CAD to construct operating systems that are required when the automation is to be installed. 

Special skills are in demand

Many companies need to improve their operations by developing their processes. Through increased automation, the company's profits can increase.
When doing so, automation engineers who know construction, programming, optimization, installation and deployment are required. The labour market is primarily made up of the manufacturing industry but also includes other environments.

Choose Co-op and get closer to reality

In order to become even more attractive to the labour market, you may choose to study on a Co-op programme. This will provide you with employment experience by combining studies with work during paid periods of work at a company. You will not get any closer to reality at a university!
