This course provides the necessary academic, practical and professional education to help you learn and acquire high-tech competencies and advanced technological skills in the interlinked areas of signal processing, dynamic systems and automatic control. These three areas are the crucial building blocks of modern engineering methodologies applied for the design, development, implementation, and analysis of complex systems ranging from engineering applications and industrial problems, to more mundane situations such as financial modelling and environmental control.
Through this course, you will learn how to look out for, and capture, the similarities and structures of different systems and processes, how to extract useful information from typically large amounts of data generated by such systems, and how to optimise and control their behaviour. You will learn the relevant basic theories, design methodologies and implementation techniques within the areas of system modelling, signal processing, dynamics and systems, automatic control, computer vision, machine learning and computational intelligence. By the end of this course you would thus be able to apply these hi-tech skills in a wide range of professional areas such as system automation, process control, biomedical engineering, manufacturing, transport and robotics to name but a few.
The course is open to graduates in engineering, information technology, physics, mathematics and related areas. The language of instruction is English.
