  Control Engineering Fact Sheet
Control engineering is used to optimize the performance of engineered products with respect to measures such as energy and material usage, speed, reliability and accuracy of direction, or velocity of mechanical motion.
Control engineering is an area of specialization within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at North Dakota State University.
Control systems have ranged from the centrifugal governor controlling the speed of James Watt's 18th century steam engine to computer-based autopilots controlling the flight paths of 20th century jumbo jets.

  Control engineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Control engineering is the engineering discipline that focuses on the mathematical modelling systems of a diverse nature, analysing their dynamic behaviour, and using control theory to make a controller that will cause the systems to behave in a desired manner.
Control engineering is the engineering discipline that focuses on the modelling of a diverse range of dynamic systems and the design of controllers that will cause these systems to behave in the desired manner.

 Control theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Controllability and observability are main issues in the analysis of a system before deciding the best control strategy to be applied.
Controllability is related to the possibility of forcing the system into a particular state by using an appropriate control signal.
Adaptive controls were applied for the first time in the Aircraft industry in the 1950s, and have found particular success in that field.

 Control Engineering
Engineers there needed to replace an obsolete control system with technology capable of supporting global enterprise integration and reduce process variability caused by manual interventions.
Goals of the engineering phase (phase 1) were to establish a solid knowledge base of current control system functionality and develop a clear understanding of expectations for the new system.
For the project to be successful, the team was convinced the correct engineering firm needed technical competence, flexibility, and empathy with the schedule; the winner also needed to be void of bureaucracy and stubbornness.

 Engineering
Intelligence test - Artificial intelligence is unlikely to replace engineers, says Charles Clarke, but knowledge-based tools are already playing an important part in testing and 'genetically engineering' complex design processes.
But before these molecules were crafted into modern engines, virtual facsimiles of them were subjected to vivid, lifelike simulations of these actions, the whole shebang conjured by an artificial intelligence as sophisticated as anything conceived of in The Matrix.
