Control Engineering is a multi-disciplinary subject, with applications across a wide range of industrial sectors. The Control Systems Group in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester has been running an MSc course in Advanced Control and Systems Engineering since 1968. The course is geared for graduates from a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines.
The aims of the course are to:
- provide an advanced education in control and systems engineering, emphasising modern theoretical developments and their practical application
- give a sound fundamental understanding of the principles underlying the operation of control systems
- enable students to apply modern control principles in various areas of industry
Students acquire a range of intellectual skills that cover the design, analysis and simulation of control systems. A strong emphasis is placed on practical and transferable skills through laboratory exercises and the use of software packages.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:
- MSc (full-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): £10,500
International students (per annum): £24,000
The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.
Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.
