Modern industrial plants

The education curriculum is focused on modern industrial plants, where advanced automation is needed. This particularly implies:
  • a pluridisciplinary approach to system modeling, capturing the physical principles that drive the plant dynamics;
  • an increased complexity and the need for communication between systems with embedded intelligence;
  • crucial specifications in terms of safety, robustness, productivity and quality;
  • processes operated at different time-scales and for which global control approaches can bring major performance improvements;
  • integrating advanced system theory with the latest high-tech automation solutions.
These specific aspects of industrial plants are considered in the courses, labs or supervised projects, which are oriented toward multidisciplinary solutions for industrial problems.
