The standard University fees apply to this programme. International (non EU) students may apply for a bursary towards the cost of their tuition fees.
This programme will not have a 2016 intake as the content is being extensively improved.
The programme aims to offer a rational, flexibly structured and coherent postgraduate study in Automatic Control. While providing advanced general knowledge in Electronic Engineering, the programme is specifically focussed on nonlinear control principles, measurement instrumentation, simulations and implementation of feedback control. The programme is designed to provide specific skills for individuals who wish to become a control engineer in manufacturing or research and development in industry sectors, or to pursue a PhD in control engineering.
With a track record of 20 years, the research group Control & Intelligent Control Systems Engineering at the University of Hull has an international reputation for its initiatives in the field of fault diagnostics of dynamic systems. This expertise along with its staff’s teaching experience in control engineering supports the masters programme.
The course will provide students with: • advanced knowledge of control principles including multivariable feedback control and nonlinear control systems, • essential knowledge of control systems configuration, algorithm design and evaluation, • a general knowledge of advanced computer simulation and measurement instrumentation, • skills in the software and hardware implementation of control the latest computer modelling and simulation techniques, • research experience in control applications in the engineering field, • experience of undertaking a significant relevant research project
• Multivariable feedback control • Robotic manipulator control • Machine vision • Applied Optoelectronics • Time Signal Processing and Integrated Circuit Design • Low Power/Voltage Design and VHDL • Advanced Digital Systems Design • Microwave Devices, Techniques and Measurements • Communication Systems • Intellectual property rights • Research skills and project planning
