Role

Course Leader

Predictive Control - ELEC97070

Role

Course Leader

Mechatronics - AERO50007

Aims

From aircraft autopilots to satellite communications to re-usable space rockets, mechatronic systems are everywhere in aeronautical engineering. This course aims to give a fundamental grounding in the theory and practice of mechatronic systems relevant to aeronautics, including data acquisition systems, sensors, actuators and control systems. 

Role

Lecturer

Control Systems - AERO96002

Aims

  • To provide students with the fundamental concepts in the analysis and design of automatic control systems for use in a wide range of technologies (not just Aeronautics, but also Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Finance, Biology, etc.)
  • To introduce some applications of control systems in the aerospace industry.
  • To provide a framework and language to communicate with professional control engineers in their terms about control issues.
  • To introduce the student to using industry-standard software, such as Matlab and Simulink, for control system analysis and design.
