Control Engineering is a multi-disciplinary subject, with applications across a wide range of industrial sectors. The Control Systems Group in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester has been running an MSc course in Advanced Control and Systems Engineering since 1968. The course is geared for graduates from a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines.
The aims of the course are to:
- provide an advanced education in control and systems engineering, emphasising modern theoretical developments and their practical application
- give a sound fundamental understanding of the principles underlying the operation of control systems
- enable students to apply modern control principles in various areas of industry
Students acquire a range of intellectual skills that cover the design, analysis and simulation of control systems. A strong emphasis is placed on practical and transferable skills through laboratory exercises and the use of software packages.
