We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Control Systems equip postgraduates with the skills to apply engineering principles to the electrical and electronic measurement, regulation and operation of various devices.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in relevant subject such as Electrical or Electronic Engineering.
Courses in this field are often interdisciplinary in approach, combining theory and practise from control and systems engineering, as well as computer science.
You will learn to operate and manage a range of systems for products related to automotive, aerospace engineering, and power generation industries. This includes the design, production and maintenance of intelligent systems, non-linear controllers, adaptive systems and data engineering.
Consideration is also given to current policy and practise, operations management, economics and commercialisation.
Careers in this field are extremely varied; you may opt to specialise your Masters specifically to your career goals. For example, you might choose to focus on artificial intelligence and robotics, fuel-powered machinery, renewable energy production, or even spaceflight.
