Industrial Automation & Robotic Systems

This is a multidisciplinary four-year engineering programme. It has an excellent graduate employment rate and provides graduates with a range of practical skills and competences in areas such as: Electro-Mechanical, Electronics, PLCs, SCADA, Control and Instrumentation, Industrial Networks, Data Modelling, Motion Control, Robotics and Software Engineering. Manufacturing in Ireland is highly automated and there is a move towards Industry 4.0, the smart factory, which is advancing manufacturing operations in Ireland. Modern automated production lines will involve data exchange, cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and cloud computing. It is this advancement that requires a programme such as Industrial Automation & Robotic Systems to develop and ensure that technicians and engineers leave the programme with skills and competences that allow them to design, commission, debug and repair intelligent machines, including industrial robots and flexible manufacturing systems.
