In this course, you’ll learn how to design and install the instruments and control systems that allow engineering systems to be monitored and controlled in a way that is safe, environmentally sound and cost-effective.
You’ll explore state-of-the-art technologies such as programmable logic controllers (PLC), and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) that are used by industries. You’ll focus on how these are used in mining, chemical and mineral processing industries and in other processing sectors. A final Honours year is embedded in this degree, allowing you to apply everything you learn in your first three years of study.
If you’re looking for another pathway to study this course, you could apply for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology and transfer across to this engineering major at the end of your first year of study.
When you graduate with a degree in Electrical Engineering (Instrumentation and Control), you can become a graduate member of Engineers Australia. You could become a Full Chartered Professional Engineer after a further three to five years of engineering work experience.
You can choose a second electrical engineering major (Renewable Energy Engineering, Industrial Computer Systems or Electrical Power Engineering), to graduate with a double major and expand your expertise and career prospects.
You could pursue a career in oil and gas, mining and mineral processing, food and pharmaceuticals, defence and related industries, utility supply, transportation industries, electronics and communication industries, chemical and petrochemical, information technology or consulting firms.
