If you wish to embark on an exciting career in the area of control systems and engineering or are a practising engineer who wishes to update their skills then this is the course for you.
This is a challenging course which covers all the major aspects of automatic control systems engineering.
WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
This course covers all the major aspects of automatic control systems engineering, with modules ranging from classical control system design to optimal, adaptive and intelligent control systems, including an introduction to artificial neural networks and evolutionary computing.
This Course has been awarded accreditations from the IET and InstMC.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
All students study Seven fundamental modules which serve to underpin the remainder of the course:
-Maths & Computing for Control
-Linear Control Engineering
-Digital Computer Control Systems
-Non-Linear Control engineering
-System Identification, Parameter Estimation & Filtering
-Self-Tuning and Adaptive Control
-Control Systems Engineering Project
The remaining Option Topics on the course are:
-Digital Computer Control Systems;
-Simulation of Systems
-Data Acquisition and Embedded Control
-Signal and Image Processing
-Artificial Intelligence for Control
-Single Independent Study
(Students are required to select from the modules above to complete a total of 30 credits.)
In addition, the masters project can be tailored to suit the interests of each individual, and have included in the past: Adaptive model based control of a hot steel rolling mill; Comparison of rule-based and model based control systems; Identification of diesel engine characteristics from operating records and Development of a fuzzy logic gas engine speed controller.
HOW WILL THIS COURSE ENHANCE MY CAREER PROSPECTS?
On completion of this course you can expect to pursue a career in the area of control and systems engineering.
The course also provides the necessary groundwork for a career in research in academia or another such research organisation, including our own Control Theory and Applications Centre (CTAC) and Applied Mathematics Research Group (AMRC).
GLOBAL LEADERS PROGRAMME
To prepare students for the challenges of the global employment market and to strengthen and develop their broader personal and professional skills Coventry University
has developed a unique Global Leaders Programme.
The objectives of the programme, in which postgraduate and eligible undergraduate students can participate, is to provide practical career workshops and enable participants to experience different business cultures.
You should have a first degree (or equivalent) in any engineering or physical science subject with a good mathematical content. Candidates with relevant industrial experience may be allowed entry to the course provided their experience can be taken in lieu of formal qualifications.
