Control Systems in Electrical Engineering


Control systems research studies how to manipulate the parameters affecting the behavior of a system to produce a desired or optimal outcome. The tools that form the body of knowledge, known as control theory, are applicable to a wide variety of systems, including electrical, mechanical, chemical, biological, economic, and social systems.

UCSB is a world-renowned leader in control systems engineering, with a large number of highly recognized control faculty engaged in very high-impact research. Control systems research at UCSB is coordinated through the multi-disciplinary Center for Control, Dynamical Systems, and Computation (CCDC). Currently, the Center consists of faculty and graduate students from the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics.
