Automatic Control

Making systems of various kinds perform well is what automatic control is all about. We are some 40 people in the division that teach this subject to more than 1000 undergraduates per year. We also do research that aims at covering a broad spectrum from industrial applications to development of new theories. Visit our pages to learn more about us, our research, courses, publications and the spin-off companies our research has resulted in.
