Subject: EPICS training information

Dear EPICS Tech-Talk,

We currently doing a research about EPICS, how to communicate with EPICS, EPICS topologies, and EPICS implementation in PLC IOC based systems.
As we are a group of students, and we are basically Electrical and Automation Engineers, the EPICS field is new for us, we have little knowledge about it.
We've tried to read through the website, still have few difficulties to go deeper in the content.
Our questions here are :
-How does 'EPICS' create a control system (the definition says so , "EPICS provides a number of tools for creating a control system"), meanwhile, another important part of another definition says "PS: When installing EPICS, does not create a control system"!
-Do we , as Automation Engineering students , need to learn the algorithm and the programming procedure if we will be maybe implementing EPICS with automated systems ? 
-EPICS is about collaboration between People, Labs, sites, is it mandatory or it can be used for educational individual use, if yes, what is the hardware needed for that.
-What are the software needed basically to use EPICS, as we will be using software like S7PLC or EtherCAT ? 

We appreciate having an answer soon as we are unfortunately under a time DDL.

Best Regards
