  • Objectives
    This four-year MEng course covers advanced control system design technologies as well as standard approaches to systems engineering and computer control. Feedback control systems are routinely used in a wide range of engineering systems - electrical, electronic, mechanical, chemical, biotechnological and civil as well as in economics and in financial services. The course is available as a three-year BEng or four-year MEng degree. We use a wide variety of teaching and assessment methods to deliver a broad learning experience and equip you with transferable skills. There are also opportunities to study another language, and take part in group and individual projects.
