Control engineering

The main task of control systems is the targeted and automatic control of technical processes in all fields of engineering - from chemical engineering to electrical drive technology and high-precision machine tools to applications in robotics. Control engineering makes use of different tools and methods of engineering and advanced mathematics as well as of physics and chemistry. Thus, it is a highly interdisciplinary science. Methods of control engineering play a key role in the "Industry 4.0". The focus of the institute in teaching and research is set in an appropriate manner.
