BSc Project (Control Engineering)


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The project must be based on a physical process. The process can be mechanical, thermal, electrical, biologic or chemical. A dynamic model of the process has to be developed. The model has to be adjusted and verified through measurements. Demands as well in the time as in the frequency domain has to be specified. Using the dynamic model classic controllers are designed and implemented on the process. The controllers have to be evaluated and compared to the demands

Learning objectives


  • Must have knowledge about┬ádesign of control systems
  • Must be able to understand and implement dynamic modeling, classic controller design.


  • Must be able to analyze dynamic systems in time and frequency domain
  • Must be able to analyze and apply controller design methods based on root locus
  • Must be able to apply mechanical, thermodynamic, biological or chemical equations to develop a dynamic model
  • must be able to analyze and apply methods for simulation of dynamic systems
  • Must be able to synthesize, i.e., implement and test dynamic models and controllers
  • Must be able to evaluate industrial control and supervision methods.
  • Must be able to communicate the above knowledge and skills (using terminology of the field), both orally and in a written report


  • Must be able to analyze and design classic controllers based on a first principle model.
  • Must be able to make first principle models
  • Must be able to select and extract relevant features and apply these in a new context
  • Must be able to plan, structure and execute a project, within the subject-field of this project module
