Control Engineering

Control engineering is an engineering discipline that deals with “control systems”, applying “control theory” to design equipment and systems with desired behaviors in “control environments”. Control systems are devices or processes that can regulate themselves or other systems, using feedback loops. Control theory is the mathematical study of how to achieve such regulation, using concepts such as stability, observability, controllability, and optimality.

Control engineering can be applied to a wide range of systems, such as mechanical, electrical, fluid, chemical, biological, and financial systems. Control engineers use mathematical models, analysis, and design tools to develop controllers for these systems, and implement them using available technology. Some examples of control systems are:

– Cruise control for regulating the speed of a car
– Flight and propulsion systems of commercial airliners
– Washing machines that adjust the water level and temperature
– Thermostats that regulate the temperature of a room
– Industrial robots that perform precise tasks
