prepared and practically trained to satisfy the requirements of local industry. Moreover,

graduates from this course will be suitably prepared to embark on careers or further their


Control engineering is, from many perspectives, at the peak of the various engineering

disciplines. Indeed, many engineering problems involve the processing of information

of some form in order to control some system or variable within a more complex system. Giving students a good preparation in control engineering increases their attractiveness to industry.

Study/Course Delivery
Assessment The purpose of assessment is to ensure that effective learning of the content has taken place. For each unit delivered students will be assigned a mixture of home-based and time-constrained assignment in class. At the end of the course students will also present their thesis.
