Students will analyze and design control systems with an emphasis on control software, programmable controllers and data acquisition. They will perform experiments which emphasize the practical aspects of control principles while studying the feedback provided by control systems. Students will learn the control modes and methods of implementation by analog and digital means.
Students will have experience with hands-on troubleshooting, maintenance and optimization of electronic control systems; proven technical leadership, and systems-level understanding of observatory functions. All this is necessary for the job market.
The department will now be able to host a number of research opportunities in the area of software development to meet real world goals and functions. This can help in the development of advanced technology and artificially intelligent systems.
