Foundation course of automatic control. Introduction to basic concepts and properties of dynamic systems of physical, engineering, biological, economics, robotics and informatics nature. Basic principles of feedback and its use as a tool for altering the behavior of systems and managing uncertainty. Classical and modern methods for analysis and design of automatic control systems. Students specialized in systems and control will build on these ideas and knowledge in the advanced courses to follow. Students of other branches and programs will find out that control is a inspiring, ubiquitous and entertaining field worth of a future cooperation.
