Welcome

Welcome to the IFAC TC 9.4. Control Education web pages. For recent news. minutes of meetings and announcements please look in the news tab.

Going forward, the most important activities for this committee are the following.

  1. The prime project for the committee for the next few years has been agreed as the survey and compilation of worldwide opinions on what constitutes a good curriculum for engineers doing just one or two courses in control related content. Current work focuses on questionnaire design.
  2. There will also several education sessions at Control 2018 http://control2018.group.shef.ac.uk/special-sessions to which all are welcome.
  3. Planning and support for the next symposium on advances in control education to be run in 2022. Bids will be considered at the committee meeting during the next world congress.
  4. Planning for contributions to the next IFAC world congress. Several suggestions are being pursued as noted in the July 2019 minutes.
For longer term planning, we are likely to embed internet based control education themes into special sessions at other conferences and in 2022 the regular symposium on advances in control education. Anyone who is interested in hosting is encouraged to make contact with the TC chair.
