Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
OverviewThe unit introduces the student to classical control systems, analysis and synthesis, and implementation in an industrial control context. It introduces the principles of electrical measurements and instrumentation, sensors, PLC, DSC and industrial networks, and foundation of feedback control theory for engineers.Learning OutcomesOn completion of this unit you will be able to:1. Develop mathematical models of mechanical, electrical and electromechanical systems.2. Calculate and estimate the stability measures, error measures and time response measures from the analysis of mathematical models of some simple engineering systems.3. Design and report the development of practical controllers and compensators in feedback control systems to achieve the desired behaviour.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
