The Systems and Control area of DEIB counts 40 faculty staff members (17 full professors, 5 associate professors, 18 assistant professors) and more than 50 temporary researchers, including PhD students, post-docs and research collaborators. The staff is completed by an administrative assistant and technical support people.
Systems and Control area is devoted to teaching and research in various fields related to control system science and engineering, industrial automation, systems theory, environmental systems, ecology, operations research, and electronic measurements.
Despite the rich variety of topics, both theoretical and application-oriented, a unifying system level viewpoint is generally adopted, which enables the analysis, the management, and the design of complex systems, through the powerful theoretical tools of mathematical modeling.
As for the teaching duties, the members of the area are responsible for more than one hundred courses offered each year by the Scuola di Ingegneria Industriale e dell'Informazione (School of Industrial and Information Engineering). Systems and Control members also have leading responsibilities in the Automation Engineering Program in Milano and in the Environmental and Geomatic Engineering Program in Como.
A significant part of the basic and applied research activity, together with advanced teaching, is supported by the experimental facilities available in 5 laboratories.
