The MSc Applied Instrumentation and Control has been delivered at Glasgow Caledonian University since 2004 to full time students but also to a population of distance learners employed in professional engineering roles. An account is presented of the programme philosophy and of the means employed for both modes of delivery. The origins and destinations of the alumni population, both in terms of geography and employment sector, are reviewed. Finally, the evolution of the course content towards an integrated systematic approach to instrumentation and control is considered.
