Learning Outcomes
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to
  1. Acquire the necessary skills to produce visual models of real world events

  2. Demonstrate a proficiency in the design and development of a HMI

  3. Broaden a knowledge of the theory behind and techniques employed in program design

  4. Use visual programming techniques (i.e. Labview) to interface with industrial hardware

  5. Understand the function and application of networking protocols 

  6. Understand the deployment of SCADA software for the development of increasingly complex tasks.

  7. Be able to implement remote telemetry over a Client/Server architecture.

  8. Understand OPC Server and Client communication.


Assessment Strategies

The students will be asked to develop an interactive project, suitable for the process industry. The

project will be conducted in the students own time using the skill developed during class.

The student will be continuously assessed on practical work conducted in class. The work will be

based directly on skills learned during the practical class.

The final examination will be based on material covered during in lectures
