Students with engineering, electronics and communications backgrounds often decide to further their studies by pursuing a master’s degree in automation. Some engineering students want to take the next step from undergraduate studies toward a doctorate. Other students use this graduate program to further focus their studies in engineering with courses that will advance their specific career interests in automation and robotics.
What is a Master in Automation? This graduate degree is a bridge to a career in automation engineering or to doctorate studies in automation and robotics. Engineers in robotics are in high demand, and the field is expected to expand. Students who enter this program will research robotics and how mechanization can be applied to processes in fields such as retail, transportation, manufacturing, medicine and aeronautics. This program includes a heavy focus on development projects and training to build robotics.
Undergraduates interested in robotics and engineering benefit from a Master in Automation by sharpening their engineering skills with a more specific focus in robot technologies. This program offers in-depth automation design and development training, useful for advanced positions in industries that rely on mechanization. It also prepares engineers with undergraduate degrees for doctoral work in automated machines.
The cost of the master’s program depends on the institution. The program usually takes between one and three years to complete. Students interested in pursuing this coursework should thoroughly research each institution to find a program that fits their financial and course length requirements.
As engineers in the robotics field are in high demand, students who successfully complete coursework in automation will have a wide variety of career choices. Graduates may choose to enter research and development positions, or manage automation in factories, transportation systems, large-scale construction projects, military projects or aeronautics and space programs. Automation engineers design and manage robots that assist humans, perform life-saving tasks in dangerous situations, build ships, control traffic and fly unmanned crafts, among many other revolutionary applications.
