Study programme Control of Machines and Processes

About study programme

The study programme Control of Machines and Processes is focused on the control of machines and the control of processes. As a machine you can imagine different production equipment and its subsystems, just as their grouping, it can be a robot, autonomous systems or mechatronic systems. The process can be not only a production technology in different fields of industry but also it can be the decision-making processes and control processes at the upper level of the production and manufacturing processes. The PhD student deepens knowledge from control systems components with the focus on microcontrollers, embedded control systems, PLCs and industrial PCs in connection with the topic of the dissertation. He extends one’s knowledge in the control systems design for machine or process control, measurement technology and sensors, actuators including the hydraulic and pneumatic drives. He makes his knowledge of the design of the control algorithms for different control levels of the hierarchical control system deeper. He concentrates on logical control, continuous and discrete control methods, process visualization, analysis of dynamic systems and their modelling, identification and simulation and use of this expertise in the design of machine or process control. He gains his experience with the practical use of different software like MATLAB, Simulink, LabView, ANSYS, Fluent etc.
