About the Program

An engineer specialized in Electrical and Automation Engineering knows how to plan electrification and automation both for ordinary household appliances as well as complicated industrial production equipment. There are two alternate learning paths available for automation engineering students: production machinery automation and production process automation.

The engineer knows how to utilize information and electrical technology in developing automation technology in new applications. Vehicles, shops, homes, industry, traffic control and street lighting are examples of the most common applications of electrical and automation engineering.

Instruction in electrical and automation engineering focuses on wide-ranging studies in electrical engineering, the automation of production machinery and devices, and the maintenance of production facilities. The possibilities offered by new technology are utilized in the instruction, in the practical studies that include plenty of personal, first-hand activity.

In the English-language degree for Automation Engineering, the focus is on utilizing automation engineering in new areas of application. The efficient and inexpensive new data technology devices in particular offer many interesting opportunities for automation technology.

An electrical and automation engineer typically works in a high-tech company in tasks involving planning and expertise, and later, as experience mounts, in various supervisory tasks. Such tasks are available in production facilities, design and consulting offices and companies specializing in software and hardware sales.

The work is nearly always group work with experts from different fields in an international working environment.

In Production Machinery Automation students learn about the most important functions and equipment for the production of parcelled goods as well as efficient and cost-effective equipment technology based on new-technology microcontrollers. Skills involving production equipment and new technology serve as a foundation for the planning and implementation of functional and efficient automation of production.

Automation Engineering Study Modes

In Automation Engineering students will study together in weekdays Monday to Friday between 8-16. Studying is equivalent to working at a job: the student is present and works together with others in a diverse way. Daily learning situations could be:

  • Traditional classroom learning.
  • Laboratory work and exercises.
  • Learning by doing practical exercises, projects etc.
  • Learning at the workplace – projects from working life, an internship etc.
  • E-learning at home or anywhere.
