I am a Process Control Engineer (or an Automation Engineer).

Well, my background is Chemical Engineering but my specialization is Automatic Process Control. Simply put, my job is to make sure that an industrial manufacturing process is able to be controlled in an automatic manner without being baby-sitted. Got it??

Here is the company I proudly work for Cornerstone Controls, Inc.

In November 2000, Colombia held the 9th Latin American Congress of Automatic Control. During this event, people from Latin America (and other continents), who are into this Automation thing, get together and talk about developments in the field.
