    What is the programme about?
    This is a multidisciplinary four-year engineering programme. It has an excellent graduate employment rate and provides graduates with a range of practical skills and competences in areas such as: Electro-Mechanical, Electronics, PLCs, SCADA, Control and Instrumentation, Industrial Networks, Data Modelling, Motion Control, Robotics and Software engineering.

    Manufacturing in Ireland is highly automated and there is a move towards Industry 4.0, the smart factory, which is advancing manufacturing operations in Ireland. Modern automated production lines will involve data exchange, cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and cloud computing. It is this advancement that requires a programme such as Industrial Automation & Robotic Systems to develop and ensure that technicians and engineers leave the programme with skills and competences that allow them to design, commission, debug and repair intelligent machines, including industrial robots and flexible manufacturing systems. With that, it is essential that the skills are transferrable across a range of sectors such as biomedical, automotive, food processing and electronic manufacturing sectors.

    As a graduate, you will have skills that will allow you to work with highly automated and robotic manufacturing systems. You will learn the skills allowing you to work safely and competently with electrical/electronic control systems and electro-mechanical systems. Direct entry onto year 4 is possible for learners with appropriate existing level 7 qualifications.

    Who is the programme suited to?
    Automation and robotics is a fascinating area of study. If you are interested in how things work, have a logical mind, have an appreciation of the power of automation, and of how much it is going to impact our lives in the future, then you will enjoy and be successful in this area. ​
