The general area of Systems and Control crosses many disciplinary boundaries and, accordingly, our Systems and Control faculty have a wide range of expertise on topics both theoretical as well as applied. These include optimization, control theory, optimal and stochastic control, filtering and estimation, robotics, distributed parameter systems and control of fluids, nano-positioning, nano-sensing, and control at the molecular level, AFM technology, biological applications, and many others.

Our faculty in the area have fostered strong relationships with colleagues and centers across campus which include joint seminars that expose students to technology, theories, and problems in Aerospace and Mechanics, Chemical, Electrical, Industrial, Mechanical Engineering as well as Computer and Data Sciences.
