What is Instrumentation and Control Engineering?

UniKL MITEC Bachelor of Engineering Technology in Instrumentation and Control Engineering (BICE) is a hands-on program which concerns on the application and implementation of measurement and control techniques of process variables for monitoring, record, control and performance assessment of a wide range of manufacturing and industrial processes.


The need of Instrumentation and Control in industry

Instrumentation and control systems are used in most industries to measure and control variables such as pressure, flow, level, temperature, density, Ph (acidity or alkalinity), mass, conductivity, motion, force and chemical composition. These variables are consistently measured and monitored to ensure the output of a specific process are within a desired acceptable range and at the same time protect the safety of equipment in the system. Small changes in these variables may alter a process which produces a large impact at the end of the result. Corrective action need to be done immediately to control these variables back for a stable process system.

In most industries, a large number of process variables are monitored simultaneously. The advancement of technology in Instrumentation and Control engineering (ICE) fields enable industries to have only a small staff of operating personnel to operate a complex process from a central control room. ICE technology is the tool that enables manufacturers to keep their operations running within specified limits and to set more precise limits to maximize profitability, and at the same time to ensure quality and safety.

UniKL MITEC BICE is developed to ensure students gain maximum skills in specific control disciplines such as advanced process control (APC), distributed control systems (DCS), programmable logic controllers (PLC), and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). The use of these disciplines will depend on the exact nature of individual job roles.
To ensure the understanding of these specific disciplines, on the first three semesters, BICE focuses on transferring knowledge of electronics fundamentals to the students such as electrical and electronic devices, analog electronic, digital system, signal & system, sensor & actuator, microprocessor & microcontroller, etc.

For the next three semesters, BICE concentrates on the knowledge of process variables in various industrial applications. Applications which are covered in BICE are chemical & bioprocess, environmental, piping, manufacturing material, industrial automation and many more.

Programming is the heart of BICE. Various simulator and programming software will be introduced to the students such as C programming, MATLAB. MULTISIM and LABVIEW.
The hands-on laboratory component is designed to enable student to experience the installation, configuration, calibration, troubleshooting & maintain instruments (pneumatic, analog, digital) as well as implement various techniques of modern control systems in a variety of replicated industrial settings.
