Course Overview

To be able to cope with technological advances and complexities of industrial systems, graduates need to understand electrical, electronics and automation engineering along with good communication skills, health and safety issues.

Graduates can acquire and maintain a wide range of engineering products and processes. It aims to meet the increasing demand for technicians with cross-disciplinary skills, particularly in the field of control systems, electrical machines, networks, power systems and instrumentation.

Career Prospects

Diploma in Electrical Engineering & Automation is a fascinating field and one which could make your time at UDM a challenging, enriching and rewarding experience. with the rapid expansion of the technology sector over the last few decades in Mauritius and abroad, the demand for those who can create, understand and alter electrical control systems has risen accordingly.
Successful students can be employed as junior electrical technician, junior maintenance coordinator, junior production/design technician, junior automation & electronics technician, junior industrial computing, junior energy sector technician, junior naval technician, etc.

Teaching Methods

Practical and experimental skills are developed through project work and laboratory exercises. Design skills are developed through course work exercises supported by the use of the relevant computational packages. Practical skills are tested and assessed throughout the programme using a combination of coursework assignments, design studies, laboratory logbooks and project reports and/or papers.
