What You Will Learn

This module provides students with the basic knowledge of automation technologies and their applications in the manufacturing and process industries. Topics include electro-pneumatics technology and programmable logic control. The hardware components such as sensors, valves and actuators will be applied to the automated systems. Ladder diagram design programming will be covered, in conjunction with the learning of programming logic controllers. Laboratory work involves hands-on circuit construction and implementation using these technologies and techniques, which enhances participants’ understanding of the practical aspects of circuit designs.

This course forms a “stackable” module under theDiploma in Engineering (Mechanical)/ Diploma in Engineering (Mechatronics).
