Automatic Control

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 and postdocs are announced here, usually around April 1 and October 1. Two PhD positions are currently open. See below.

Fredrik Ståhl, Dept. of Automatic Control, Lund University
Opponent: Roman Hovorka, University of Cambridge

The seminar will be held in M:B on December 11, 10:15.

Up to 26 PhD positions funded by the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP) are currently open for application at five of Sweden's largest universities. Two of them are at the Department of Automatic Control, Lund University. Read more about WASP and the positions here.The application deadline is November 30.
