The Automotive & Automation

The Automotive & Automation modules equip students with the specialist knowledge and practical skills required for employment in the automotive and automation sector. Both Irish–based and overseas companies seek skilled graduates who are able to create innovative software solutions for the automotive industry. 

Through ongoing collaboration with industrial partners, students gain access to state of the art tools, processes and technologies used in this sector, covering a range of topics such as embedded software development, driver assistance systems, industrial automation, and automotive software design. This knowledge and skillset are not only sought after in the automotive and automation industry, but also in aerospace and other embedded software engineering environments.

The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things practitioner must be comfortable when dealing with the many kinds of devices and systems that connect the Internet and the environment. Such competence must be built on an awareness of the various means with which devices and systems perform, how they can be made to perform well and how their performance attributes may be changed.

The Internet of Things modules will start to build this competence with the single board computer, the single board micro–controllers and fundamental analogue electronics, which when combined together will afford the environmental input-output capability with basic access to the network. The single board micro-controllers combined with the fundamental analogue topics will give ready access to the analogue and low–level digital world, whose key parameters of interest can be sensed and if necessary conditioned for conversion into digital form, as well as offering an effective actuation interface for analogue change.

Protocol-defined communications covering all aspects from framing commands and information to the hierarchy of reliable communications, will open up the ability to convey information and commands over various media types and allow the candidates a complete education in more complex microcontroller based internet access points.
