Introduction

Instrumentation and Control is a modern engineering discipline that provides knowledge in areas of measurement, Process Control, system dynamics, electrical instrumentation, process instrumentation, PLC and DCS systems. An Instrumentation and control Engineer involves in design, develop, diagnose, troubleshoot, and research in control instruments. The programme deals with Measurement and instrumentation, PLC & DCS systems, Control systems, Sensors Transducers and Actuators, Power Electronics, Remote Sensing and Control system design. Instrumentation and Control Engineers are employed in a range of modern industries such as Oil & Gas industry, mining & Energy industry, health care sector and more. Therefore, Qualified Automation and Robotics engineers are in great and continuous demand and can serve in manufacturing and service organisations.

Why Study our Programme?

One of the main distinctive features of this programme is that the student will get a British award from the University of the West England, Bristol, UK, (recognized worldwide) while studying in Muscat.

What you will be studying?

At the beginning of the programme, you will study Engineering Experimentation, Program design and implementation, Electrical and Electronic principles, engineering mathematics and practical electronics. As you progress control, measurement and instrumentation, Sensors Transducers and Actuators, Microcontroller applications, Remote sensing, Control System Design, Analogue and Power Electronics, Intelligent and Adaptive systems modules are taught. Alongside, you will also develop professional skills in project management, project planning, Entrepreneur skills and communication. Throughout the program, you will apply the acquired knowledge through practical laboratory work using our state-of-the-art lab facilities. You will get an inside track on the industry through factory tours and professional briefing from leading organisations. In the final year, you will also take an individual project module to demonstrate the knowledge gained by you in the program.

Where can it take you?

Instrumentation and control Engineers are in great demand because of the rapid advancement of the automated processes and industries  in the region and around the Globe. These advancements create continuous job opportunities for competent Engineers who are able to deal and develop these disciplines further. This engineering specialization of instrumentation and control allows our graduates to have great career prospects. Typical employers (including and not limited to) are companies from the Oil & Gas industry, petrochemical companies, Bio-Medical companies, defense and security, remote sensing companies and Government entities. Opportunities are also available in manufacturing, transport and rail, aviation and many other industries. Moreover, instrumentation and control Engineers have the skills and the ability to start their own businesses in the booming market situation and the opportunities are countless. If the student is interested in pursuing postgraduate studies after successfully completing the degree, then having a British qualification will facilitate admission to top universities in the world.
