Introduction​

The Control Systems research group is a newly formulated research group at MCS, and focuses on research-based activities related to Model/ Controller reduction, UAV’s control and several other control related applications. The group is working on concepts related to market-based applications with the aim to enhance undergraduate and postgraduate students’ design/ research skills.
