Both in production and in products, increasing requirements for energy efficiency, quality and safety, combined with cost reduction, are leading to the increasing use of more complex methods of automation technology. This requires not only the knowledge of common technologies, but also the ability to solve complicated automation tasks that require sophisticated methods of modelling, simulation and control. Such skills are taught. This opens up a wide range of professional activities for graduates as engineers, e.g. in the fields of conception, planning and project management in process control engineering, production control engineering, energy control engineering, building control engineering, traffic control engineering or in automation within vehicles and airplanes.
