Electrical Engineering

Our modern electronic world requires efficient and reliable energy production and distribution, which form a part of electrical engineers' responsible tasks. The importance of electrical engineering is constantly growing, as new energy production and consumption methods and solutions that are less taxing on the environment are being developed for different areas of life.

Electrical engineers are mainly employed by the electrical, telecommunications and electronics industries, and are engaged in design, development, research, production, commercial and management duties.

Automation Engineering

Automation is essential in all industry. It is utilized in monitoring and controlling industrial processes, energy management and process lines. In addition to industry, automation is also used in many everyday applications. Expertise fields of automation technology include different measurements, control technologies, and modern systems such as programmable controllers, PC-control rooms and distributable automation systems.

Automation engineers design and implement the automation of industrial processes, production equipment and products. They are also in charge of the operation and maintenance of computer based data collection, PC control room systems and automation systems. Automation engineers are employed, in addition to industry, also in design and software companies, in import companies and in research institutions. Duties vary from product development to design, programming, technical purchase and sales and training related expert and supervisory duties. Other expertise fields of an automation engineer are computer technology, extensive software know-how as well as economics and quality know-how.
