Summary

Control Engineering is a multidisciplinary subject, with applications across a wide range of industrial sectors. The Control Systems Group in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester has been running an MSc course in Advanced Control & Systems Engineering since 1968. The course is geared for graduates from a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines.

The aims of the course are to: - Provide an advanced education in control and systems engineering, emphasising modern theoretical developments and their practical application.

  • Give a sound fundamental understanding of the principles underlying the application of control systems.

  • Enable students to apply modern control principles in various areas of industry.

Students acquire a range of intellectual skills that cover the design, analysis and simulation of control systems. A strong emphasis is placed on practical and transferable skills through laboratory exercises and the use of software packages.

Prior to your Summer break a preliminary study and outline of your MSc dissertation project is completed, which is fully developed throughout the second year of your course. The year-long enhanced individual research provides great opportunities to develop advanced research skills and to explore in depth some of the topics discussed during the course. This includes training in research methods, and advanced simulation and experimental techniques in advanced control and systems engineering, as well as academic paper writing and poster and paper presentations.

Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), the University of Manchester's new £400m purpose built home for engineering and material science , is nearing completion. The physical move to the new development is scheduled to take place between January 2021 and December 2021. Whilst it is anticipated that access to equipment, or work on projects for which such access is required may be limited during the period of the move, plans are underway to ensure that any disruption caused is minimised, a wide selection of dissertation projects will continue to be available, and excellent student experience remains pivotal. If you have any questions about how the move may affect you, please contact pgt-eee@manchester.ac.uk.
