The Department of Automatic Control at Lund University was created in 1965 and has today grown to hosting about 60 people.
We give courses within the regular engineering program to students from different areas of engineering. We also have a PhD program where the students specialize in various theories and applications of automatic control.
Our research is concentrated to seven areas:
Modeling and Control of Complex Systems, Control and Real-Time Computing, Process Control, Robotics, Automotive Systems, Biomedical Projects and Tools.
The department is hosting several large research projects funded by the European Commission and Swedish funding agencies. There is also active collaboration with industry.
Positions for PhD students are announced here, usually around April 1 and October 1.
