About Automation & Mechatronics Sector:

The control and automation domain is a multi-disciplinary field. It requires a convergence of various engineering fields—CS/IT, electrical, mechanical, chemical and electronics to develop a solution. “Control and automation requires a blend of process knowledge, logic theory, software/platform knowledge, instrumentation and IT

While, Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanical systems. It is the science that exists at the interface among the other five disciplines:  Mechanics·  Electronics·  Informatics·  Automation·  Robotics·

There are big skill gaps in various sectors / industries such as: manufacturing, power, plastics, pharmaceuticals, automotive, petrochemicals, distilleries, oil refineries, paints, electronics etc for the skilled Automation Specialists and Automation Technicians, who can Capture user needs, design, assemble, test and I&C of Automation Systems involving electrical, electronic, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic components, Control Panels, PLCs, SCADA, communication and software.

Scope and Entry Level Roles in the Automation Sector:

Automation field is a rapidly expanding field and in a developing country like India, there are immense growth opportunities for an individual.

The entry level roles do involve getting into installation, commissioning, etc, and these experiences help one come up with efficient and safe designs in automation projects. Regarding the scope for career development in this field, broadly, an engineer can work in three different kinds of companies. The first are pure-play automation companies that are suppliers of automation equipment and software to various industries. Then there are industrial users of automation products and services, such as companies in automotive, power and the oil & gas sectors. Finally, there are services companies, which provide consultancy and services to integrate products from pure-play automation companies with the manufacturing processes of the industrial users.

These services add high value by adapting standalone machines and middleware, and customise them to the specific needs of optimisation and control, remote management and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. Typically, entry level roles involve validation of automation and control systems’ designs. Gradually, the engineer moves into designing and modelling of the systems. There are two broad categories of firms that absorb freshers or engineers with one or two years of experience.

The first are hard core electrical or electronic engineering companies like Siemens, which hire for projects, design, engineering, commissioning, sales and servicing of the automation products and systems. The automation product and systems could be PLC, HMI, SCADA, networking systems, DCS, sensors, etc. The second type are the hard core manufacturing or consumer industries (involving the use of automation), where these engineers would be required in large numbers. Companies in the consumer industry include Cadburys, Times of India, Ford, Tata Iron & Steel, Ranbaxy, CEAT Tyres, etc. The jobs could be in areas like plant and projects, plant maintenance, plant purchase, plant engineering/ commissioning, plant production, etc

Learning Outcomes: Participants shall be imparted with live hands-on with PLC, Sensors and HMI software Package followed by Industrial Training, to help them develop necessary skill sets to –

  • Understand the Tools, Technology, Hardware and Integration Methods used in Industrial Automation
  • Understand the dynamic needs of automation industry and business
  • Understand the automation hardware and software for better decision making
