  • Entry requirements
    Engineering graduates seeking employment in the Automation and Control sector, and, in part-time mode, for practising engineers from the Control Systems area who wish to extend and update their skills. The overall objective of the Master's programme is to add value to the first degree and previous relevant experience by developing in individuals a focused, integrated and critically aware understanding of underlying theory and current policy and practice in the field of control systems engineering. Using the framework of the engineering benchmarks as a model, a typical student taking full advantage of the learning opportunities provided will demonstrate achievement of knowledge, understanding, intellect, practical and transferable skills.
  • Academic title
    MSc/PgDip Advanced Control Systems
  • Course description
    Programme content
    The programme is control systems focused, with the emphasis on control systems theory together with a range of control applications including industrial control (SCADA), intelligent control, flight control and robotic control. The control systems approach provides continuity in learning throughout the one year of study. Within the main technical areas, analysis, synthesis and conceptual design are underpinned through the use of software tools to aid the design process. The introduction of a range of computational tools, such as MATLAB and Simulink, in Engineering Computation and Computational Intelligence, Pro-Model Manufacturing System Design and Simulation and RS-view in Automation and Robotics, enables the study of realistic industry standard problems.
