Available Specializations of the field Cybernetics and Control Engineering
Specialization Automatic Control
The aim of this specialization is to provide students with further in-depth knowledge of selected areas dealing with the study of general systems and processes of technical and non-technical character as well as modern principles of their control. The student will gain a comprehensive idea of the methods of control system design based on the ability to create mathematical models, signal processing, system identification, use of optimization and adaptation methods, prognosticating and decision-making. The method of control system design uses the modern principles of digital control and includes system control for uncertain systems, non-linear systems, systems with multiple inputs and outputs and large-scale systems.
Specialization Information and Control Systems
The aim of this specialization is to provide students with further in-depth knowledge of selected areas of information and control system planning (i.e. analysis, design and implementation of automated ICS). The topic is closely connected with the utilization of computer technology both in the planning process and as part of the systems planned. Students will become acquainted with programming tools such as development environments for industrial applications of ICS, visualization tools for dispatch control systems, programmes for systems analysis, design and implementation of systems (CASE systems), etc. In the area of the application of cybernetic approaches, students will also learn about the methods of model creation and simulation of discrete as well as continuous systems.
Specialization Artificial Intelligence
The aim of this specialization is to provide students with further in-depth knowledge of selected areas using the methods of artificial inteligence in technological as well as social practice. The UI methods and procedures studied include those that can be especially applied in solving complex tasks in which the use of standard exact mathematical procedures does not always lead to the solving of the problem. Students gain information regarding the application of intelligent decision-making methods, design and implementation of man-machine speech communication, computer vision, neural network, knowledge systems, etc. The training in the area of the machine-aided solving of even very complex tasks on the basis of their decomposition into simpler ones will also enable students to utilize the knowledge gained in dealing with common everyday problems.
The aim of this specialization is to provide students with further in-depth knowledge of selected areas dealing with measuring, identification and modelling of biocybernetic systems, processing analog and digital signals, etc. Students also learn about decision-making methods supported by artificial inteligence, namely for the purposes of the design and implementation of diagnostic systems in medicine (expert systems in medicine, neural networks, etc.)
Specialization Automation and Mechatronics (shared specialization of the departments of Cybernetics and Mechanics)
The graduates of this specialization will gain further in-depth knowledge of discrete mathematics, automated control as well as technical applications of informatics, and will be prepared for the planning and research of mechatronic systems. These are mechanical systems with electronic control elements with or without feedback which display minimum energy consumption under the required behaviour, and respect the needs of the environment. This interdisciplinary specialization is currently undergoing revolutionary development, supported by the demand for precise mechatronic devices in the areas of industry, means of transport and manipulation. The theoretical knowledge of the students is developed through the creation of mathematical models of mechatronic systems of real constructions, in their simulation, computer visualization, identification, optimization and design on the basis of linking the principles of cybernetics and mechanics.
