Control, Robotics and Autonomous Systems major provides a strong basis in control engineering and automation, allowing a student then to specialize in a particular area of interest such as factory automation, robotics, smart systems, or industrial software systems. Central topics for all students include modelling, estimation and control of dynamical systems, as well as embedded systems and software for modern automation systems. Most courses include theory as well as its application in practice.  Upon completion of the Major, the student will be able to:

  • Understand the need for automation
  • Design models and controllers  for dynamical systems
  • Analyze properties of and dynamics of systems
  • Design industrial software applications
  • Understand in depth one of the focus areas (robotics, smart systems, control engineering, automation software, or factory automation)
