Current advances in automatic control allow for the successful control of complex dynamical systems with the result that completely new products are developed. There are varying fields of application including mechatronic components and systems, almost all field of automotive technology, aerospace, production technology and engineering, devices for medical engineering and even non-technical applications.
Therefore, the methods of automatic control are designed to be used universally encompassing problems of modeling, analysis and the design of dynamical systems. Furthermore, concerning the application of control circuits by networked processors, problems of signal processing and information technology play a major part and are of particular interest to our practical courses. Being an interdisciplinary and system-oriented discipline, Automatic Control offers careers with a wide range of options in all the major industrial and commercial sectors.
The lecture Regelungstechnik (Auutomatic Control) given during the basic studies is compulsory for the Bachelor degree course Mechanical Engineering and scheduled for the fourth semester. Afterwards, we recommend to choose the lecture Systemtheorie in der Mechatronik (System Theory in Mechatronics) as Bachelor degree module and to participate in the practical course Computergestützter Regelungsentwurf (Computer-assisted Control Design).
Within the different courses, the Master degree courses are assigned to one of the three following areas which are core competencies (KK), core modules (SP) and interdisciplinary modules (SÜ). As far as the core competencies are concerned, a specific minimum quantity of credits is required and as for the other two areas, a specific maximum quantity of credits is optional. The survey below is to help students to choose the appropriate course concerning the modules provided by the Chair of Automatic Control.

You choose one of seven master degree courses available at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
The Master degree courses Mechatronics and Robotics as well as Automotive Engineering provide you with many Master degree modules in Automatic Control. However, you can find and choose the discipline Automatic control not only in all the other Master degree courses offered by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, but also in some Master degree courses from other faculties.
