This programme is aimed at graduate engineers who would like to continue their studies and learn about automation and control systems engineering and how they are applied to the process industries. It is also aimed at scientists and engineers who are working in the pharmaceutical and related industries and who would like to move into a control and automation engineering role. This requires knowledge and understanding of the instrumentation used in these industries, how control systems work, how to tune a control loop, and how PLCs, SCADA systems and a DCS are used to monitor and control a highly automated process plant. Knowledge of the process itself and some process engineering are also required along with an understanding of how the industry is regulated and validated. All these issues are covered here.
Graduates are eligible for the award of Masters of Engineering in Pharmaceutical Process Control and Automation of the Dublin Institute of Technology.
This programme will develop the knowledge and skills set required to work at a high level of research, design and development in control and automation in the Pharmaceutical and related process industries.
The programme consists of 12 taught modules and a project. Modules are delivered through a mixture of lecture, assignments and laboratory work, e-learning and problem based learning by academics and industrial experts.
* Research Methods
* Process Instrumentation
* GMP and Validation
* Process Automation Engineering
* Process Control Engineering
* Pharmaceutical Processeses
* heat Transfer and Fluid Flow
* Reactor Design and Separation Processes I
* Advanced Control Engineering
and select from:
* Statistical Analysis
* Innovation and Knowledge Management
Optional Modules (choose 2):
* Separation Processes II
* Material Handling and Drying
* Mass Transfer Applications
* Process Analystical Technology
* Faciltity Design and Operation
* Computer Systsems Validation
* Advanced Automation Engineering
The project module requires completion of a project and a dissertation. Work based projects are encouraged.
Assessment A variety of assessment methods are used to assess the taught modules including assignments (group and individual), short tests, formal examinations, reports and presentations. The project will be assessed on the basis of the work undertaken, an oral presentation and a written report on this work.
A minimum of an honours degree at second class honours, lower division (2.2) in an accredited engineering degree or an honours degree with a minimum attainment of a 2.2 honours, in a suitable sciece discipline, for example chemistry, physics or biology. Some candidates may be required as a condition of entry to take specific modules from the School's Level 8 programme, the Honours Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering as appropriate bridging modules.
Non-Standard applications: applicants holding a qualification or combination of qualifications deemed by the Institute as being of equivalent standard to the above when taken in conjunction with relavnt work experience may also be considered.
Note: Due to the considerable competition for our postgraduate programmes satisfying the minimum entry requirement is not a guarantee of a place. Depending on the programme of study applications will be assessed based on your academic grades and may also take into account your work/life experience. Applicants may also be required to attend for interview for specific programmes.
