System Engineering and Engineering Cybernetics

Program description

The program is aimed at achieving research skills in the following fields of Control and System Engineering: Modern Control Engineering, Automatic Control Theory, Optimal Control, Computer technology of control, Information Technology. It includes such basic courses as Design of digital control systems of mobile objects, Computer technology of control in engineering systems, Digital Information Processing, Mathematical Modeling of object and control systems, Computer-aided design of control means and systems. Research skills seminar as well as such advanced subjects as Advanced Process System Engineering, Complex Systems, Dynamics of distributed parameter systems, Hybride Discrete Event Systems, Methods of optimal control theory etc. Students during their study are involved into the complex group projects and at the 4th semester they prepare and defend Master thesis under the joint supervision. The basis of master's training is the development of cybernetic and control system-theoretical approaches and methods and their application for solving practical tasks.
