INTRODUCTION

The respected International Society of Automation (ISA) estimated that at least 15,000 new automation engineers are needed annually in the US alone. Many industrial automation businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced automation engineers despite paying outstanding salaries.

The Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) perfectly addresses this gap in the Industrial Automation industry. The program's twelve core units, and project thesis, provide you with the practical knowledge and skills required. Students with a background in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control, or industrial computer systems engineering can benefit from this program.

The content has been carefully designed to provide you with relevant concepts and the tools required in today’s fast-moving work environment. For example, Power Engineering covers major equipment and technologies used in power systems, including power generation, transmission and distribution networks. Programmable Logic Controllers covers in-depth principles of operation of programmable controllers, networking, distributed controllers, and program control strategies. Industrial Process Control Systems combines the process identification and feedback control design with a broad understanding of the hardware, system architectures and software techniques widely used to evaluate and implement complex control solutions. Industrial Instrumentation identifies key features of widely used measurement techniques and transducers combined with microprocessor devices to create robust and reliable industrial instruments. Process Engineering will enable students to evaluate and apply complex process calculations through application of control principles. Industrial Data Communications provides the requisite knowledge to manage modern field buses and industrial wireless systems. Safety Systems provides an introduction to the common safety philosophy of hazard identification, risk management and risk-based design of protection methods and functional safety systems. SCADA and DCS cover hardware and software systems, evaluation of typical DCS and SCADA systems and configuration of DCS controllers. Special Topics enable students to incorporate current technologies and the knowledge acquired from the entire course and thus solve complex Industrial Automation problems.

The Masters project, as the capstone of the course, requires a high level of personal autonomy and accountability, and reinforces the knowledge and skill base developed in the preceding subjects. As a significant research component of the course, this project will facilitate research, critical evaluation and the application of knowledge and skills with creativity and initiative, enabling students to critique current professional practice in the Industrial Automation industry.

The MSc in Biomedical Science (Online) is a part-time, distance learning programme designed for students working in a hospital/laboratory setting. The programme comprises 4 structured stand-alone online learning modules from the Biomed Online Learning Programme and a workplace based project.

Students apply for the MSc programme after completing four online modules and once they have their project idea approved. The project is conceived by the individual but carefully scrutinised by a suitably qualified team drawn from the university and workplace before implementation and normally conducted in the workplace under guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner, and the whole overseen by an academic supervisor from the university. This helps to ground the programme with relevance to workplace requirements.

The online learning modules each offer Continuing Professional Development credits and each has been designed to be relevant to workplace practice. Students are given a free choice of modules, currently sixteen, so that they can tailor their studies to the needs of their workplace and their individual areas of interest. The online modules run for two intakes each year - October to January, and April to July.

The programme is not intended to be an 'end point' in an individual's personal development, but as a stage from which they can continue career development and increase their potential to make greater contributions to overall employer needs.

The Biomed Online Learning programme is managed by a consortium of NHS Trusts, Pathology Joint Ventures, Public Health England and the University of Greenwich.

For further Information please contact the Biomed Admin Manager:

Phone: 020 8331 9978

The aims of the programme are:

- To provide an appropriate knowledge base in specialised areas of biomedical science, with the intention of building on individuals' skills and knowledge base obtained at undergraduate level or its equivalent and in the workplace

- To provide part of the lifelong learning that plays an essential role in biomedical science generally

- To provide continuing professional development in selected areas within that field of endeavour.

Science - Biosciences

Bioscience in essence is the use of science to explain human physiology and disease and to use the knowledge of science to develop treatments. It is the application of science rather than the study of things for their own sake.

Bioscience degrees are a result of the ever advancing needs of specialist knowledge as new scientific breakthroughs are made. They are partly a product of this specialisation and partly a response to students interested in human-focused study.
