Description:Our world is becoming more automated all of the time. Building control systems, manufacturing processes, industrial robotics, power generation and distribution, homes and thousands of other processes. They all rely on electrical equipment and digital processes to keep them operating properly and communicating to each other. But it still takes a person to design, program, install and maintain all of that equipment. Could that person be you?
