Systems and Control Engineering is in a position of great importance in almost all aspects of our lives. Modern life depends crucially on systems that have to operate independently to achieve a specified purpose accurately and safely.
“A complex connection of electromechanical components and computer systems each of which is simple in its own right but which together, have the ‘intelligence’ to achieve a complex objective with minimal human intervention.”
Systems and Control Engineering is in everyday use – from smartphones and cars, to medical and defence systems, to aerospace and the robots that assemble cars, explore the depths of the sea or the surface of planets. The list of applications is endless and the world needs Systems and Control engineers, educated to a high standard, with the potential to define new innovative, value-driven and personalised systems and services.
