Objectives & Outputs

The program’s objective is to incubate professionals equipped with technical and engineering knowledge which reflects the immediate technological needs and practical skills required to produce control and automation engineers who are capable of making a positive contribution to their countries and their communities immediately after graduation.


The vision of the control and automation engineering program is to provide a high quality engineering education leading to graduate engineers capable of performing planning, design,  installation, operation, control, and maintenance of industrial automation and process control systems and further advanced control applications.


Graduates of the control and automation engineering department are expected to have attained:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of engineering mathematics, science, and technology,
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,
  • an ability to design control and automation systems,
  • an ability to communicate effectively in writing and speaking both in national and international arena,
  • an ability of designing and setting up a system or a process, putting it into service and operating under the constraints of economic, social, ethical, health and security and reducibility, and sustainability,
  • an ability to design and perform experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data,
  • an ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams,
  • an ability to use the techniques, and modern engineering and software tools necessary for engineering practice.
