Course content

Is your undergraduate degree in engineering, mathematics or science? An accredited MSc in Control, Automation and Artificial Intelligence will help you to develop skills that would be beneficial in almost every engineering field from automotive, aircraft industry, power and energy, automation, process industry including oil and gas, food and drink, pharmaceutical industry and many others.

Control engineering is a means of managing and measuring performance of process systems in areas from power plants and nuclear reactors to construction companies and manufacturing. The principles of control also extend in activities as diverse as managing risk in the financial sector to studying climate change within science.

The course covers three specialist pathways within the field of control systems engineering, which feature a balance between theoretical and practical content and is therefore designed for graduates in engineering or science. If you wish to embark on a career as a technical specialist in analytical aspects of control engineering or if you are a practising engineer looking to stay abreast of important advances and developments, you may want to consider this course.

Academics delivering teaching on this course are actively involved in research and consultancy with industry, which ensures your taught materials are based on techniques and technologies currently relevant to industry. Parts of the teaching materials are also offered as CPD training for engineers from industry.
