This integrated course includes Level 4-6 learning, as found on a BEng degree, as well as Level 7 Master’s programme content.

We will prepare you to be creative and innovative in addressing challenges from the implementation of the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and 5.0.

This course is for those students interested in developing their careers in areas of both analytical and practical aspects of control engineering, with emphasis on implementation of practical industrial control systems. This course also provides excellent preparation for those wishing to continue their study to doctorial level research.

Students will study Discrete Control Systems and Stability and control of Non- Liner Systems, Smart Sensors, Competitive and Reliability Engineering, Applied Artificial Intelligence, Creative and Innovative Design Projects, and complete an Advanced Research Project.

The course has been designed to create effective multi-disciplinary engineers who have acquired the necessary creative, technical and research skills to work within the broad spectrum of modern industry.

Besides, this course will equip you with the advanced knowledge of industrial control engineering including the classical control system design to optimal, adaptive and intelligent control systems, operation, engineering management, pioneering approaches in this field and how to apply them to solve both real-world and pioneer research oriented problems.

The course has been designed to be accredited by Engineering Council through the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (iMechE), and/ or Energy Institute. 

This course forms part of our wider Engineering portfolio. Find out about the other courses we offer and our committment to STEM at our Engineering Hub pages.
