Overview

Is your undergrad degree in engineering, mathematics or science? An accredited MSc in Control, Automation and Artificial Intelligence will help you to develop skills that would be beneficial 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.
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.

The course covers three specialist pathways within the field of control systems engineering, which feature a balance between theoretical and practical content and is 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.

Programme structure

The three pathways within this MSc Control, Automation and Intelligent Systems Course are:

Pathway 1: Control Engineering
This pathway focuses on analytical aspects of control engineering. It is designed for students interested in developing their careers or upgrading their knowledge in areas that require accurate and robust control design for possibly unstable systems, with emphasis on implementation. This course provides excellent preparation for those wishing to pursue their careers as a control engineer or technical specialist in industrial fields such as automotive, aerospace, energy, and other electrical and mechanical engineering based industries, as well as those who are interested in pursuing postgraduate research.

Pathway 2: Automation
This pathway focuses on automation technology and practice in industry. It is designed for students interested in developing their careers or upgrading their knowledge in areas including control in manufacturing process, systems design, systems integration, system operation, with emphasis on implementation. This course provides excellent preparation for those wishing to pursue their careers as a control engineer in industrial automation fields such as in oil and gas, power distribution, chemical and food industry and other process control based industries, as well as those who are interested in pursuing postgraduate research.

Pathway 3: Intelligent Systems
This pathway focusses on decision making based control approaches. It is designed for students interested in developing their careers or upgrading their knowledge in areas such as system designer or system developer with emphasise on implementation of control algorithms that involves optimisation and learning. This course provides excellent preparation for those wishing to pursue their careers as a control engineer in various autonomous systems applications, such as autonomous vehicle or driverless cars, intelligent robotics, as well as those who are interested in pursuing postgraduate research. This pathway is suitable for students with software engineering or computing background, or other engineering background with particular interest in coding or programming.
