Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Summary... header image

Automation Engineering involves the design, development and implementation of sensor and robotic systems for applications across a wide range of technological sectors. Modern engineering systems employ a broad spectrum of technologies, which when integrated provide for improved efficiency, quality and reliability.

The combination of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Computer Technology, namely, Mechatronics, is core to this endeavour. This integrated approach is becoming increasingly important in modern technological environments. This programme is delivered from a multi-disiplinary perspective, thus equipping graduates for a diverse range of modern technological roles.


Students will develop a range of skills in the design and implementation of automation solutions; from 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD, Solid-Modelling), sensor and instrumentation selection, programming of robotics to the management of the resulting systems. The study programme is designed to provide the student with the skills necessary to perform as a technologist in a range of industries.

The programme appropriately combines academic class-work and practical “hands-on” work in DIT laboratories and workshops. Work placement in a suitable industrial environment is undertaken in Semester 2 of Year 2.

Students who reach the appropriate level in final examinations and meet certain subject prerequisites may progress to Level 8 Honours Degree programmes (typically enter at Year 3 of the 4 year programmes at DIT or elsewhere). Those who graduate with this Bachelor of Engineering Technology Degree (B.Eng.Tech) degree qualify for the Associateship membership (AMIEI) of EI.
