Overview

The aims of the  Advanced Control and Systems Engineering course from The University of Manchester 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 operation 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.

Career opportunities

Graduates from the course are employed in a variety of industries, including process and petro-chemical industries, manufacturing, power generation and the automotive and aerospace sectors.  Recently there has been a surge in demand for control engineers in the field of biomedicine.  More generally feedback control and systems engineering skills play an important part in an ever widening range of high tech applications.

The MSc can also be used a spring board for postgraduate research.  Approximately 50% of the current PhD students in the Control Systems Group are graduates from the MSc course.
