Automation

State ID: SMT0076

 

This skill set is a part of an Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology (Electrical) and it is designed to develop your skills in computer based measurement, programming and control by exploring PLC and SCADA systems. The strong laboratory and project based approach provides students with practical experience in using these systems in an industry environment. Students will gain experience in working with small scale system involving designing, programming, fault finding, testing and networking.

Course Units:

  • S713 UEENEEE126A  Provide soutions to basic engineering computational problems
  • WC428 UEENEEE123A Solve basic problems - electronic and digital equipment and circuits
  • WC430 UEENEE127A Use advanced computational processes to provide solutions to energy sector engineering problems
  • WC666 UEENEEI150A Develop, enter and verify discrete control programs for programmable controllers
  • WC667 UEENEEI151A Develop, enter and verify word and analogue control programs for programmable logic controllers
  • WC668 UEENEEI152A Develop, enter and verify programs in supervisory control and data aquisition systems

On completion of this skill set you will receive a statement of attainment and may be able to work as an Automation Technician/Programmer or Building Control System Technician/Programmer. If you have any relevant experience, you may be able to work as a PLC/SCADA Programmer.

To do this skill set, you might need to complete some pre-requisite units. So, if you've studied previously or have relevant experience, please talk to us about Recognition of Prior Learning {RPL} credits.

Pre-Requisite Units

  • UEENEEE029B Solve electrotechnical problems and
  • UEENEEG102A Solve problems in low voltage a.c. circuits (or) UEENEEH014B Troubleshoot frequency dependent circuits and
  • UEENEEE101A Apply Occupational Health and Safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace and
  • UEENEEE104A Solve problems in d.c. circuits and
  • UEENEEG101A Solve problems in electromagnetic devices and related circuits

You may be eligible to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning {RPL) credits for the above mentioned units based on your previous qualification or work experience. Recognition of Prior Learning will be supported by a qualified assessor. Students are encouraged to speak to lecturers if they feel they have any existing skills that may be formally recognised towards the achievement of a unit or qualification.
