Industrial Instrumentation and Process Automation

Instrumentation and control are interdisciplinary fields. They require knowledge of chemistry, mechanics, electricity and magnetism, electronics, microcontrollers and microprocessors, software languages, process control, and even more such as the principles of pneumatics and hydraulics and communications.

This is what makes instrumentation and control so interesting and instructive.
