Comments about MSc Automatic Control - At the institution - Hull - East Yorkshire
The course aims and objectives are: to provide advanced knowledge in control principles; to provide general knowledge in computer simulation and measurement instruments; to train skills in software and hardware implementation of control algorithms; and to facilitate your professional development, leading to a successful professional career.
This programme is for students who wish to become a control engineer in manufacturing or research and development in industry, or to pursue a PhD in control engineering. The programme provides a balance between control theory and practical control engineering applications. Students acquire knowledge in control theory, algorithm development, simulation, interface design and control implementation, complemented by generic engineering knowledge and skills.
MSc Automatic Control
-Product Planning and Design Exercise (Semester 1)
-Advanced Control (Semesters 1 and 2)
-Low Power/Voltage Design,VHDL and Project Planning (Semester 2)
Students choose three modules from the following list (although not all modules may be available in any one semester).
-Control and Robotics
-Advanced Digital Systems Design
-Complex Circuits and Systems
-Advanced Discreet Time Signal Processing and Integrated Circuit Design
-Radio Frequency and Microwave Devices, Techniques and Measurements
