About this program

Bachelors in Engineering (Machine and Process Control)

Our work may be complex, but it can be easily explained. So what do graduates of Machine and Process Control do? It is behind the automation of production across a range of industries. Most automated lines can be found in the food industry. They fill your favorite lemonade, pack the addictive sweet sticks. But even such a car factory is one large automated factory. In our work, IT is linked to engineering. First we have to come up with the hardware, and then the IT part comes. The advantage of the field is the versatility with which you can be applied in a wide field of industry as a designer of control, measuring or diagnostic systems of industrial equipment. You will be well versed in related engineering fields.
