What is an MSc in Automation? This master’s degree teaches students the fundamental principles involved in the design and operation of automated control systems used in many practical applications. Modern production relies heavily on automation to accomplish many routine jobs, saving human labor and often improving the accuracy of the completed task with automated (robotic) control.

The benefits of earning an MSc in Automation include a thorough grasp of the methods of creating and implementing automated control systems in various technical and practical applications. Students receive a broad understanding of intelligent systems and control engineering, with studies in robotic hardware, robotic programming, virtual reality (VR) systems, and simulation technologies. Computer studies form a large part of the education as well.

The cost of an MSc in Automation can vary somewhat, depending on factors like the school, the length of the program, and the country in which the degree is taken. Students should anticipate at least two years of intensive studies and the attendant costs of living associated with such a degree program.

The kinds of careers available to students who earn an MSc in Automation cover a wide range of positions in manufacturing, design, engineering, and systems management. Many industries have need of automated systems or intelligent programs for control or production, and professionals with the advanced training of the master’s program are suited to career positions in machine learning, robotics, systems design, and more.

The MSc in Automation can be earned through in-person classes or online degree programs. The steps to apply for one of these programs are simple. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Effective operation and maintenance processes are very important for a sustainable future. This Master's program is designed to fulfill both industrial and academic demands so that you can pursue a career in a technical and competitive industry or academia. The goal of maintenance is to keep systems free from errors by early identification and prevention of problems. In the program, you learn to analyze the causes of faults and implement improvements in the process. You'll also learn how to implement solutions that reduce energy consumption or costly breakdowns which in turn contributes to a sustainable future. -
