Course info


Enrich your first degree and previous relevant experience by developing a focused, integrated and critically aware understanding of underlying theory and current policy and practice in the field of control systems engineering.

The specialist postgraduate degree course blends control systems theory with a practical exploration of range of control applications, including industrial control (SCADA), intelligent control, flight control and robotic control. This control system approach provides continuity in learning throughout the course.

The course content is designed using Engineering Council benchmarks. It is awarded accredited status by both the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the exemplifying academic benchmark for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for students who also hold an accredited BEng Honours degree.

You will:

  • Gain a critical awareness and understanding of current problems in control engineering
  • Learn how to deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively
  • Make sound judgments in the absence of complete data
  • Communicate your conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialists


Teaching and learning is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, computer workshops and laboratory activities. Students benefit from the supply of a range of high-quality teaching materials and software. Interaction is face-to-face wherever practical, but we also use web-based learning support packages (databases of materials, discussion boards etc.) and there is a strong focus on guided self-learning.
