Automation and Robotics Specialisation
Smart Solution DevelopmentMore
This module provides students with fundamental knowledge of some basic solutions implemented in industries. Open-source software tools will be used for solution development. Topics covered are basic programming, data collection & monitoring, data storage and basic computer vision to recognize color. At the end of the course, students will be able to develop and apply skills learnt to develop solutions to help to improve work flow efficiency.
Programmable Logic ControllersMore
Provides fundamental concepts and examples to understand the operation and capabilities of programmable logic controllers as an important tool for factory automation. Simple control strategies using ladder diagram are implemented.
Robotics for Advanced ManufacturingMore
This module covers how to operate, simulate, and program industrial robots and collaborative robots for advanced manufacturing applications. It includes integration of the robots with other devices such as programmable logic controllers, IO sensors, safety sensors, vision cameras, and end-effectors. Students will learn about machine vision, and various fieldbus communication protocols such as OPCUA, Modbus TCP, and EtherNet/IP on top of learning about robotics.
