Welcome to Systems & Control Engineering

The Systems and Control group, formed in 1977, is a unique interdisciplinary program in the country that offers post-graduate education in the broad area of Systems and Control. The Ten faculty members of the group have varied research backgrounds, that includes nonlinear control, robotics, path-planning, embedded control, coordination of autonomous vehicles, multi-agent systems, game theory, information theory, combinatorics, sliding mode control and applications, fractional-order modelling and control, optimization and optimization-based control, and stochastic processes. Other faculty members of the institute with an interest in the field also participate in the activities of the group. The alumni of the group are employed in many reputed academic institutes, ISRO/DRDO and research laboratories, and corporate R & D units of the country.


The Systems and Control group of IITB has been featured first in the IEEE Control Systems magazine series "Institutes in Control" featuring groups worldwide that have made an impact in the field. Click here for the article.
