NIELIT for Students


Job Oriented Industrial Automation Course 4 Engineers

Industrial automation is basically interfaced or control systems among computers & robots and information technologies for handling different works in the industry. It replaces a human being for the same work.

It is a very common phenomenon for controlling machinery, processes in factories, boilers, and heat treating ovens, switching on telephone networks, steering & stabilization of ships, aircraft, other applications. By using automation, the industry increases efficiency & accuracy during production.


There are various institutes for training of Industrial Automation System design courses in India. I have explained here a course by the National Institute of Electronics & Information Technology (NIELIT), Calicut (under Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India).


It has many centers all over India such as a. 12 centers in North Zone, b. 19 centers in North East Zone, c. 3 centers in East Zone, d. 2 centers in South Zone, e. 3 centers in West Zone. Here I am describing a course from NIELIT.
