Rationale
In previous semesters students have learnt the fundamentals of electronics, digital circuits, Visual Basic practice and control devices, they are capable to understand and develop a basic circuit. To use this knowledge and programming skill in the field of automation it is also necessary to learn about Programmable Logic Controller. Programmable Logic Controller works as brain of automation system, which can be programmed for desired functions for controlling different machines. The Industries therefore demand for persons having automation knowledge with skill of P.L.C. programming. To cater to the need of Industries and to convert their basic skill in to some advance level, this course is being introduced in their 5th semester.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Operate PLC.
ii. Use PLC memory.
iii. Use Boolean algebra to simplify designs.
iv. Use Ladder Logic Function and advance function for PLC programming.
v. Select PLCs for relevant applications.
