Fields of practice: Electrical Engineering major



Autonomous control systems play an essential role in modern society. They can be found in residential, medical, industrial, and scientific applications -- from a simple room temperature control to a sophisticated control system to govern a distant space-probe to visit and study remote worlds. Therefore, the benefits that control systems provide are vast including, social, economic, environmental, and scientific benefits.

This studio subject focuses on aspects of control engineering design. The overall aim of this studio is to provide a rich and attractive practice-based learning environment for electrical engineering students to deeply learn and become professionally competent in control engineering. Students work from concept stage to realisation of product, thus, striking balance between theory and practice. To realise these aims, this studio focuses on the methods of reflective design practice, teamwork, mentoring, and deep learning techniques, including immersion in difficult problems. The subject allows students to move towards senior roles in teams, expects students to become accomplished in reflection, and demonstrate application of control engineering skills, with an accent on design, and simulation-based and practical validation.
