Is your undergrad degree in engineering, maths or science? An MSc in Control Engineering from Coventry University will bring you to a precious career in almost every engineering field from automotive, aircraft industry, power and energy, automation, process industry including oil and gas, food and drink, pharmaceutical industry and many others.

About

Control engineering is a means of managing and measuring performance of process systems in areas from power plants and nuclear reactors to construction companies and manufacturing. The principles of control also extend in activities as diverse as managing risk in the financial sector to studying climate change within science.

Fully accredited by both the Institute of Measurement and Control (InstMC) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this Control Engineering course from Coventry University is one of three specialist pathways within the field of control systems engineering, which feature significant mathematics and computing content and are therefore designed for graduates in engineering or science.

If you wish to embark on a career as a technical specialist in analytical aspects of control engineering or if you are a practising engineer looking to stay abreast of important advances and developments, you may want to consider this course. 

Career prospects

Successful completion of our Master’s degrees in Control Engineering and Systems and Control could provide you with skills applicable for industries including automotive, aerospace, process/chemical industries, manufacturing, robotics and automation, finance and banking.
