Comments about Bachelor of Engineering (Instrumentation Control and Automation) - On Campus - Joondalup - Western Australia

  • Objectives
    Instrumentation control and automation engineering is the integration of electrical, electronic and computing engineering with control engineering for the development of intelligent control systems to automate monitoring, processing, and production in different engineering industries. Areas of study within instrumentation control and automation include analog and digital electronics, computer aided design and manufacturing, signal analysis, communication and networking, electrical machines, sensor technology, process control, automation, robotics, system design and development, and project management. Graduates of the course will be conversant in electrical and electronic engineering, have specialist skills in design, development and management of advanced control and automation systems, and have the ability to participate in and lead complex multidisciplinary projects. The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects. Instrumentation control and automation engineers have diverse employment opportunities in most sectors of industry, including product design and development, manufacturing, mining and resource, agriculture, public utilities, road and transport, defence, aerospace, chemical, pharmaceutical, and consulting.
  • Entry requirements
    In addition to satisying standard ECU admission requirements, satisfactory performance in TEE (or equivalent) Calculus or Applicable Mathematics is required. TEE Physics is desirable. Students who have completed a TAFE Diploma or its equivalent in an allied engineering field may be admitted to a Bachelor of Engineering with advanced standing. Special admission requirements Note: Students who have not completed TEE Calculus or TEE Physics (or equivalent) will be required to complete bridging units during the first year of their studies.
