What You Will Learn

This certificate comprises of three courses that provides participants to attain the fundamental concepts of industrial hydraulic applications to be implemented in automation and process industries and perform practical hands-on circuit construction and implementation.

Power Hydraulics

This module aims to impart the fundamental concepts of industrial hydraulic applications to be implemented in automation and process industries. Core competencies in the module will include the understanding of the typical component blocks such as hydraulic power pack systems, hydraulic actuators and the different types of hydraulic valves that make up industrial hydraulic systems for various applications. An integration of the industrial hydraulic system with electrical controls will be illustrated.

Industrial Automation

This module aims to equip students with the basic knowledge of general electronic devices as well as hard-wired and programmable types of automation solutions. Their applications in sequential control systems and low-cost automation will be covered. Major topics include electro-pneumatics technology and programmable logic control. The essential hardware components used in automated systems, such as sensors, valves and actuators will be applied to the automated systems. Widely accepted industrial control programming language LD will be covered, in conjunction with the learning of programming logic controllers and computer interfaces.

Instrumentation & Control

Automatic continuous control systems are used extensively, from controlling operation in home appliances to machines and systems used in manufacturing and process industries. This module aims to provide students the essential knowledge on the various types of control components, the operation of feedback control systems, effects of controller setting on system performance and stability.
