Department of Control Engineering

Control Engineering refers to the use of algorithms and feedback in engineered systems. Control engineering plays an essential role in the development of diversified technologies such as aerospace and transportation, information and networks, robotics and intelligent machines, biology and medicine, and materials and processing. The use of control is extremely broad and encompasses many different applications. These include control of electromechanical systems, control of electronic systems, and control of information and decision systems.
Contributions to the field of control engineering come to many disciplines, including pure and applied mathematics; aerospace, chemical, mechanical, and electrical engineering; operations research and economics; and the physical and biological sciences. The interaction with these different fields is an important part of the history and strength of the field.
 The Control Engineering Department, established in 1980, engages in research and teaching in control systems and offers curricula leading to the BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees. The department provides an in-depth training in modern control engineering concepts, with special emphasis on System modelling, guidance and navigation, robotics, system identification and artificial intelligent systems. Students will find control engineering attractive due to its high technological relevance to an exciting, rapidly expanding and flourishing industry.
Many educational laboratories, including linear control system Lab, Robotic lab, Instrumentation Lab and Digital control Lab mainly intended for undergraduate students and/or research activities in graduate programs are equipped with the latest educational facilities and systems. The graduate students are admitted in three fields of control engineering as System engineering, robotic & AI, and guidance & navigation.
