Automation engineer job description in Malaysia

Do you have a dream of becoming an automation engineer?

What is the job description and how much does it pay?

According to Iriz Iziad Abdullah, who works as an automation engineer at Shah Alam, Selangor, “My friends think I go to work and build Transformers,” jokes the 27-year-old, “but I’m afraid my job isn’t as glamorous as that.”

Basically, automation engineers develop, programme and maintain automated machinery and systems.

“My job is to assemble, simulate and test these equipment, as well as customising a robot’s functions for specific tasks.

“So no Autobots and Decepticons, just regular machines,” he says.
