The classic automation technology is concerned primarily with the automation of production and its linkage with transport systems through the evaluation of sensors and driving actuators . Of course, digitization also plays an increasingly important role here: Due to the increasing networking of production systems with the planning areas of a company and the integration of external logistics, the technology of information processing in modern automation technology is becoming more and more important. New topics in the field of automation, such as remote diagnosis and remote maintenance of systems, require knowledge of data security.
The automation technology and production informatics course takes these current trends in digitization and networking into account without neglecting the classic disciplines of "measurement", "control" and "regulation" (MSR technology). The production computer science brings together the information technology (IT) and production. In-depth knowledge in the field of system simulation and software engineering is imparted in order to guarantee the functional safety of automation systems.
During their studies, prospective engineers work and learn with the latest software technology, such as C ++ and Phython, because programming naturally plays a major role in automation technology. The knowledge about the development of automation solutions imparted in manageable learning groups is deepened in well-equipped laboratories for automation technology.
After completing their studies, graduates of the automation technology course have excellent career prospects in industry and are able to actively shape the process of digitization in companies
Diverse and interesting career prospects await the prospective engineers after completing their studies.
In many industrial companies you will take on exciting tasks as a specialist or manager in the following areas:
