General information

The lectures/exercises will be given with a suitable schedule, no strict distinction between lecture and exercise can be expected. The course starts with lectures, switches to lectures/exercises and ends with only exercises.
The website http://www.uni-due.de/srs/v-ce.shtml offers actual information. The course material (as pdf-documents) is encoded with a password.

It should be noted that the german spoken course REGELUNGSTECHNIK contains
- the same material,
- is organized with the same scheme,
- uses the same exercises.

Both courses are open for both groups Bachelor.

Practical Exercise The related practical exercise System Dynamics and Control Engineering will be organized separately, it is necessary to pass an attestation to take part. The practical exercise is an additional requirement and will be graded separately.
Exam Written exam in english or german language, 90 minutes, closed-book, registration at the examination office.
