National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology, Calicut

Name of the Group: Control & Instrumentation
Name of the Course: PG Diploma in Industrial Automation System Design
Course Code: PC 100
Starting Date: 25th September 2017
Duration: 24 Weeks (720 hours)

Preamble: Stiff competition, higher quality standards and growing concerns of safety & environmental damage have pushed the Industrial sector to adapt state-of-the-art Automation Techniques for effective utilization of resources and optimized performance of the process plants. Recent trend of merging control systems associated with both factory and process automation demands knowledge from diverse fields. Automation applications span plant automation, discrete and batch process control, embedded machine control and manufacturing production line automation. The industrial automation applications include automation of time critical systems that demand precise real time readings and control. Qualified automation engineers are needed to meet these requirements of designing appropriate automation systems. But, one need to have knowledge of diversified fields such as PC/ PLC based Control, Instrumentation, H/W, S/W, Networking, Industrial AC Drives, Machine Vision, DCS, SCADA/HMI, High speed data acquisition, RTOS etc., to become a successful automation engineer.

Objective of the Course: This course is aimed at making an Engineer with appropriate experience; a qualified designer of Industrial automation systems with the use of PLCs, PACs, Industrial Field Instruments, Industrial PCs, SCADA/HMI, Data-acquisition boards, Machine vision, robots, Microprocessor based instruments, and related Software. The course also includes an industrial oriented project work during which the student will be working on specific assignments of his/her choice.

Outcome of the Course: Qualified automation engineers to meet the requirements of designing appropriate industrial automation systems.
