Course Outline

  • Session 1: Introduction to RPA, UiPath and User Interface Automation

  • Session 2: Datatable and Excel Automation 

  • Session 3: Email and PDF Automation 

  • Session 4: Capstone Project 

  • Session 5: Group Presentation by Participants

Teaching Methodology

The teaching methodology employed in this course uses brief lectures to introduce essential  concepts and theoretical principles, followed by immediate application during hands-on sessions.  This approach serves to reinforce understanding, address challenges in real-time, and cultivate  practical skills. The alternating structure ensures a balanced acquisition of theoretical knowledge  and practical competence.  

Technical Pre-requisites

Participants are required to bring their personal laptops with the necessary software and  administrative rights. If a participant does not have administrative privileges on their laptop, the  following software should be installed before attending the course: 

  • UiPath Studio 2022.10.10 

  • Chrome extension: UiPath Web Automation 22.10 


The operating system should be either Windows 10 or 11 (please note that UiPath Studio is not  compatible with MacOS). Additionally, participants should have Google Chrome version 64  installed as their web browser, along with Microsoft Office 2019 or 365. It's essential to have the  desktop versions of Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Excel and a PDF (Portable Document Format)  reader, such as Adobe Acrobat, installed as well.
