The Education and Research Division (ERD) is concerned with promoting and advancing academic and industrial research and educational initiatives and activities related to the mission of the Society. Initiatives include fostering research in industry and academia; organizing conference sessions; contributing to and/or reviewing papers for technical journals, such as ISA Transactions; furnishing ISA’s delegate to the American Automatic Control Council (AACC); promoting automation engineering, automation related courses and programs; and supporting student programs such as student competitions. The Division will function as a resource and technical information exchange for students, faculty, education professionals, and others with an interest in research and education. Members will have the opportunity to share experiences and learn from their peers. The division will work with other groups within ISA to support faculty and student members and sections.
EDD will help provide information and access to academic resources related to automation education. Those goals include providing members with information related to schools, programs, ISA Educational Foundation Scholarships, and courses related to automation.

The spreadsheet lists AE programs and courses at institutions that offer a 4-year Bachelors of Science in Engineering degree or a 4-year Bachelors of Science in Engineering Technology (or equivalent if outside the United States). The first tab lists the degree programs and the second tab lists individual courses. There are many more institutions that offer a few courses than offer degree programs.
The information is mainly obtained from public web sites. As such, the information is subject to change. Information about when a particular is offered may or may not be accessible to a non-student of that institution. Course numbers and titles change. Any updates to the information is appreciated.
