Automation and Control (MSc)

Course Description

Gain the advanced knowledge necessary to devise innovative solutions and systems in the broad field of automation and control.

Automation and control are important aspects of modern manufacturing and utility supply. Many manufacturing assembly lines and processes utilise programmable control systems.

It is essential to equip the prospective engineer in this field with the appropriate theoretical and practical knowledge. This course will extend your skills across essential areas in the field of automation and control.

See the website http://www.napier.ac.uk/en/Courses/MSc-Automation-and-Control-Postgraduate-FullTime

[{What you'll learn]]
You’ll use your existing knowledge of engineering theory and practice as the base to build new skills in this field such as embedded systems and control system design.

Using specialist equipment in our dedicated laboratories, you’ll learn to use Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, the industry standard for the development of effective control systems.

Combined with a suitable accredited undergraduate degree, the MSc degree would then satisfy the academic requirements of the UK Engineering Council for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Subjects include:
- Sustainable energy technologies
- Embedded system applications
- Automation and robotics
- Research skills and project management
- Control engineering
- Mechatronic systems
- MSc project

Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.


Think of any modern manufacturing or utility supply process and you’re seeing automated assembly lines, robotic systems and programmable controls. These services need to be created, updated and maintained by skilled workers with the right qualifications. After graduation future roles include:

- automotive industries
- automation and control industries
- renewable energy industries
- engineering research
- engineering design and development
- engineering management
- engineering consultancy
