Control Engineering and Automation

Control Engineering and Automation as a multidisciplinary scientific and technological field comprises the following knowledge: determination of requirements and criteria for control systems design related to flow of matter, energy and information; research, development and implementation of methods for information processing and data acquisition in the control systems; research, development and implementation of methods for the system analysis, the system design and the system optimization; development, design and implementation of hardware and software for computer control of systems; research, development and design of control algorithms for robots and robotized systems in industry, services and households.

Bridge courses

A student whose degree is not in Electrical engineering and information technology is required to take additional coursework as follows:

  • students holding bachelor degree in Computing have to enrol the following “bridge” course:
    • Automatic Control (5 ECTS)
  • Students holding the bachelor degree in Electrical engineering or other related bachelor degree will have to enrol additional courses depending on a difference between their bachelor curriculum and the bachelor curriculum in Electrical engineering and information technology at FER. Additional courses will be defined individually for each applicant by the Admission Committee.
