Educational goals

This study program aims to educate graduates with sound theoretical and practical knowledge and skills, able to participate in the construction of modern control systems and their implementation and operation. The study program Automatic Control and Informatics in Industry 4.0 cover complex issues of automation of production processes. This study program is a purely technical field. This study program allows the choice of study focus to be implemented in two groups of elective courses. Each group contains both a subject from general automation and a topic from the field of robotics. The connecting link in this study program is information technology, both its hardware and software aspects. According to current information from the industrial environment, in recent years, increased requirements for graduates knowledgeable in automation systems, including robotic workplaces, have begun to appear significantly. Their common denominator is the ability of university-educated graduates to equip production lines with advanced automation measuring and control systems, often including manipulators, robots, and other modern automation elements.

Graduate profile

The graduate of this study program will gain the ability to apply comprehensive knowledge in measurement, control, and complex automation of production processes and production lines in various industries, emphasizing engineering, energy, chemical, plastics, and rubber technologies. He will be able to participate in the implementation of complex automation systems both in terms of their machine and instrument composition and custom programming of control systems. The specificity of the proposed study program is to obtain a deeper education in industrial robotics, ie the application of all available kinematicly different mechatronic and robotic systems directly to the production line environment to improve the management of material flows in them. Graduates of such a study program will also gain practical knowledge and skills in using many types of computer technology, which is generally used in connection with the implementation of control systems.

Expected career prospects

The graduate of this study program will gain the ability to apply their general knowledge in the field of measurement, control, and complex automation of production processes and production lines in various industries. He will be able to participate in the implementation of complex automation systems. Graduates can also apply in IT positions, are capable of independent programming and system work associated with computer technology, and participate in the creation of projects of management and administration of production and business organizations.
