Course Description

Since the industrial revolution, control theory and engineering have been developed to operate mechanical, electrical, or communication systems accurately and automatically. The classical control theory, mainly for single-input single-output systems, was matured around 1960. After that, "modern control theory" using state-feedback, the main contents of the course, has been developed for large-scale and/or complicated systems.
This course consists of lectures in the classroom with exercises dealing with practical problems, and laboratory work with MATLAB.
In this course, students are expected to achieve the knowledge and technical methods with respect to DP1.

Course Objectives

The first objective is to understand PID control technology, which is the leading method in classical control, and to design and adjust PID controllers.
The second objective is to understand the concept of state-feedback control technology and to design and adjust pole-placement control and optimal control. They are the leading methods in modern control.

Grading Policy

Homework: 20%, Mid-term exam: 40%, Final exam: 40%

This course is the extension of classical single-input, single-output control theory and engineering lectured in undergraduate course. Students are required to have the basic understanding on these fields.
Students are required to spend at least 30 hours for preparation study, review, and reports to assignments and to laboratory works.


The concepts and principles of modern control theory and engineering are strongly related to systems engineering, especially to investigation or optimization of large/complicated systems.
