• Automation Education

    Many educational institutions around the world offer programs related to automation and control.  Some of the institutions may offer extensive programs; others only one or two courses; and some offer only continuing education programs.  Some are engineering technology programs with an instrumentation option, concentration, or specialization.  Others offer automation, control, instrumentation, or similarly titled technology programs. And others offer control systems engineering programs.
