The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering is in charge of teaching and research in the fields of automation, process control, robotics, flexible manufacturing, industrial computing and control instrumentation.
Automatic Control and Systems Engineering has been concerned from its origins with the automation and automatic control of complex systems, without direct human intervention.
It focuses on fields such as Process Control, Industrial Automation, Robotics, Supervision and adjustment of controllers and others where theories and techniques are applied, among which we can highlight: Optimal Control, Predictive Control, Robust Control, Non-linear Control, Intelligent Control between others.
The Department's activities range from basic and applied research to the development of jobs and applications for different sectors.
The area also deals with the necessary tools for the implementation of the techniques used, making use of simulation and aspects of realization in real time.
