We work with the biggest names in industry. Our courses are respected by employers all over the world. The MSc in Advanced Control and Systems Engineering is a really interesting course that touches on many subject areas such as artificial intelligence, robotics, process engineering and computer science. The course is a nice blend of theoretical, practical and lab work, and we were taught by experts in their chosen fields.
Our flagship course is a powerful blend of theory and practice, giving you a strong grounding for a career in industry or research.
This continually evolving course has been running for over 40 years and is well supported by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
We work closely with partners such as Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems – Rolls-Royce has a permanent R&D centre here. Masters students often work alongside researchers at these facilities.
Core modules provide you with the basic skills a control and systems engineer needs. You’ll also take advanced modules in current areas of interest and complete a research-level dissertation project.
