About the course
Automation and control is concerned with the design and operation of control systems used to monitor and control production processes. It has applications in industry, transport, defence and other technologies, leading to demand for graduates in this area. In Stages 1 and 2 you study a common syllabus, developing your expertise in electrical machines and electronic communications systems. In Stage 3 you take specialist topics, such as: electromagnetism, robotics and linear control theory. You cover control systems, industrial applications and distributed control. You use industry-standard equipment, experimental hardware and are trained in software packages such as MATLAB. You complement this with a large individual design project - for example, developing a photovoltaic solar power for homes in rural areas - to showcase your skills to future employers.BEng (Hons) Automation and Control3-year course, Full timePlacement year Optional

Newcastle University

Learn more about this institution Website
Newcastle Universitys can trace its origins back to the School of Medicine and Surgery, established in 1834, and Armstrong College, founded in 1871. These two colleges formed one division of the federal University of Durham and were merged to form Kings College in 1937. The Durham Colleges were the other division of the federal University. King’s College was renowned not only for providing an education in fundamental disciplines such as mathematics, science, arts and literature, but also for pioneering regionally important applied sciences such as geology, mining, naval architecture, engineering and agriculture. In 1963, the federal University was dissolved and Kings College became the University of Newcastle upon Tyne as we know it today.
Newcastle University is home to teaching and research across a diverse and exciting range of subject areas. It has over 200 undergraduate and 300 postgraduate degrees to choose from. The university is proud to have achieved a Gold Award in the UK
