The present era is of invention and innovation that has made the human life easier. Robots are being designed to make work easier and error free. Driver free cars are in the final phase of testing to reduce accidents and save human lives. With all these inventions, it is undeniable that our world is moving in a completely digitalized world where everything will be done with machines. Ph.D. in Automation helps you to be a part of this growth, in fulfilling the dream of safer future.
About the Field
Automation serves is a wide variety of industries, improving the efficiency of work and improving production processes. It helps in the increased consistency of output and thus increasing the overall profit margin and reduced spending on labour costs and expenses. The market for automation is on the steep increase as the market capitalization of the industry is expected to touch US $350 billion by the year 2024.
There are a range of applications for automation and some of them are in :
- Automated retail
- Automated mining
- Automated video surveillance
- Automated waste systems
- Industrial Automation
About the Course
Professional automation, instrumentation and control systems have become part and parcel of the manufacturing process of industries. Today it is not possible that a new manufacturing plant is built without installing instrumentation and control systems. There is a sizeable demand for automation experts as there is a huge gap between demand and supply. The aim of any course that the student would take should be to impart knowledge and skills on production processes and reduce environmental impacts of such processes. The ultimate goal should be to increase industrial sustainability through the use of automation and control.
For entering a Phd program in automation, the candidate is expected to hold a Master’s degree is a related field. The first two years forms the basis of the research which the candidate conducts in the next two years. The research is supervised by an accompanying professor and in cooperation with other researchers. The research areas which a candidate can focus on is not limited to the below:
- Multiphase flow process
- Process control
- Sensor technology
- Automatically Guided Vehicles
Since there are wide range of possibilities to develop research in automation, as it is a newer topic, the average time taken to complete a PhD in Automation is about 4-5 years.
