The aggregated skills in this program vary slightly according to the student’s choice but consist of the following: Innovation knowhow, technology design and development, production automation and quality management, project management, machine automation, automation technology, electrical motor drives, standards and directives, energy efficiency.
Automation companies need engineers with Master’s degree as specialists, designers and developers and as project managers.
VALUES IN EDUCATION
Automation technology is used to produce various kinds of products and solutions. The basis for the education is sustainable development, product life cycle managements and ethical operations.
STRUCTURE OF STUDIES
The scope of the degree is 60 credit points and it consist of an automation technology development task (30 cr), advanced professional studies (20 cr) and the studies of own choice (10 cr). The studies of own choice can be selected from automation technology basket (5 cr) and from common basket (5cr).
In advanced professional studies the students deepen their knowledge and skills on automation technology. The studies of own choice are aimed at enhancing the skills and knowledge related to the development task or special professional needs.
