Why study Computer Science and Industrial Automation?
The study provides an opportunity to combine theory with a lot of practical work related to computer science, electronics and automation. You will take advantage of and develop your creative skills, in areas that are in great demand in the market.
After successfully completing the study programme, the candidate will be qualified to apply for positions in a wide range of industrial and non-industrial enterprises within the area of software and/or automation engineering.
There are many relevant job opportunities within sectors like software developing and engineering, offshore, hydropower, process industry, manufacturing and food processing industries, transport (road, rail, aviation, telecommunications), HSE (Health, Safety and Environment), consulting engineering firms, the public sector, research institutions, the educational sector, and sales and marketing.
What you will learn
The study programme combines important topics from computer science (like programming, databases and computer networks) and industrial automation (like electrotechnics, control engineering and control systems).
The aim of the study programme is to provide you with knowledge and skills so you will be able to develop, document and maintain software and operate, document and automate industrial processes. You will be able to develop software independently, or in cooperation with people in your own and other fields.
