Learning outcomes:
This module on fuzzy control aims to teach the theory and practical application of newer methods in control engineering. The interaction of hardware and software components is explained in detail and demonstrated using practical examples. Students will be able to apply the methods acquired in this module to problems in control engineering and will appreciate the differences to conventional process control techniques. They will also learn the criteria for assessing when and where to use fuzzy control concepts and when and where to apply conventional control methods.

Recommended or required reading:
At the beginning of the course, students will be issued with a CD containing all the teaching material used in this module. The CD also contains a complete and regularly updated list of recommended reading materials. As the teaching materials are partly in German and partly in English, international students with a good command of English should be able to follow the lectures without difficulty.
