SYSE 580A1 - Control Engineering for Systems Engineers

  • 3 credits
  • Online

Challenge-driven overview of the diversity of control paradigms for modern, dynamic engineering systems for realizing desired system behaviors.

Course Objectives:
Topics include linear, nonlinear, optimal, robust, decentralized, and hierarchical control methods. Examples from aero-actuation, space, energy, thermal, chemical, and financial systems will be presented.
Successful students will learn to:
• Classify the control frameworks presented in this course
• Select an effective control paradigm for a particular engineering challenge
• Integrate a control system technique into an engineering system model
• Create MATLAB-based code implementations for the primary control methods presented in this course


MATH 229 (Matrices and Linear Equations); CBE 430 (Process Control and Instrumentation) or ECE 411 (Control Systems) or MECH 417 (Control Systems). Credit not allowed for both SYSE 580A1 and SYSE 544
