Title of the Course:

Workshop on Industrial Automation (WIA)

Duration (Hours / Weeks):
PLC: 30 hours
HMI: 10 hours

PLCs are similar to computers except, computers are optimized for
calculation and display. PLCs are optimized for control talks and the
industrial environment. Thus PLCs are rugged and designed to
withstand vibrations, temperature, humidity and noise.

PLC training brings an opportunity for Scientists, Engineers, and
Students in the field of Robotics, Mechatronics, Electronics, Telecom,
Industrial, Instrumentation, Controls, Automation and Systems to
develop their skills in microcontroller programming through hands-
on experience. The contents are designed to cover the fundamental
operations and interfacing techniques for PLCs so that you will be
able to design your own projects.
