Purpose

Learning in Automation shall contribute to developing competence in automated systems for the oil and gas industries, processing and workshop industries, and for the business sector. The programme subjects shall contribute to increased productivity, quality and safety for personnel and the outdoor environment. Product quality and dependability are significant factors. Highly qualified skilled labour in the field of automation is important to ensuring this.

Learning in the subjects shall promote skills like understanding systems and equipment, analytic abilities, restructuring, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Learning in the subjects shall also promote understanding safety factors and the ability to see consequences of choices related to environment, health and safety. The programme subjects shall raise awareness of environmental challenges related to utilisation of resources and sustainable development.

Learning in the subjects shall emphasize insight and awareness of choices related to automation systems and equipment. An understanding of safety and an application of basic rules and regulations shall be central elements of learning in the subjects. Learning in the subjects shall promote independence and cooperation with others within the same field, and with those in other professional fields. Furthermore, service-mindedness and the ability to communicate with users, support personnel and colleagues shall be upheld. Precision, creativity and problem-solving are thought processes involved in carrying out this kind of work, and are central elements in the subjects.

Learning basic planning competence and understanding systems and equipment, as well as developing learning strategies for down-to-earth, holistic, interdisciplinary learning assignments shall form the basis of more in-depth work and specialisation.

Structure

The programme area Automation consists of two programme subject. Programme subjects complement each other, and should be viewed in relation to one another.

Description of the programme subjects

Automation systems

The programme subject Automation systems covers electric, hydraulic, pneumatic and programmable logic controller systems, measuring and technical regulating systems, and routines for supervision and maintenance of systems and equipment. Integrated into the programme subject are electrical safety, quality control, internal control, and electrotechnical and mechanical calculations and concepts. Mechanical work, functions testing, measuring techniques, troubleshooting, communication, use of digital tools and entrepreneurship are integrated into this subject.

Electrical power systems

The programme subject Electrical power systems covers electrical distribution panels, electric installation systems, electric motor drives, and routines for supervision and maintenance of systems and equipment. Integrated into the programme subject are electrical safety, quality control, internal control, and electrotechnical calculations and concepts. Functions testing, measuring techniques, troubleshooting, communication, and use of digital tools are also integrated into this subject.

Teaching hours

Teaching hours are given in 60-minute units.

Vg2

Automation systems 337 teaching hours per year

Electrical power systems 140 teaching hours per year

Basic skills

Basic skills are integrated into the competence aims for this course in areas where they contribute to the development of and are a part of the basic subject competence. In Automation, basic skills are understood as follows:

Being able to express oneself orally and in writing in Automation involves relating to customers, colleagues and professionals from other fields. It also means discussing safety and choosing professional solutions, planning, guidance, documenting and user training. This involves developing precise use of language and good communication so that misunderstandings and dangerous situations are avoided.

Being able to read in Automation involves understanding different kinds of professional texts to ensure that work is always done in line with current regulations, trade specific standards, the manufacturer's technical documentation, and the customer's needs.

Numeracy in Automation involves doing calculations for planning and documentation, evaluating measurement results, dimensions and optimisation, and understanding the relationship between electric, hydraulic and pneumatic systems and circuits.

Digital literacy in Automation involves doing information searches and producing technical documents for systems and units, as well as assisting in troubleshooting. This also involves programming, configuring, troubleshooting and documenting using digital tools.
