Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Apply various techniques to work with models in practical systems environment and solve problems of engineering and science
  2. Explain the role and properties of time and frequency domain in control systems design to address real natural phenomena
  3. Work with basic methods in control systems design for control system applications
  4. Perform transient and stationary analysis of control systems
  5. Use software packages and lab experiments for testing and analysing different controller designs
Teaching Methods Class discussions with examples. Active tutorial sessions for engaged learning and continuous feedback on progress. Assignments and laboratory exercises that involve work with commercial programmable logic circuits.
