The first courses on Control Engineering and Computers were introduced at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in 1959 and 1963, respectively. In response to the world-wide development of these two fields, the first specialization in Automatic Control and Computer Engineering was established in 1977. Due to the growing demand of specialized engineers in the fields of systems engineering, computers and information technology, the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computer Engineering was founded in 1990 as a separate entity.
About the Faculty
The mission of our faculty is to prepare students to be outstanding engineers in a rapidly changing and increasingly multidisciplinary profession. Through high-quality and effective courses at the undergraduate, graduate, doctorate and continuing-education levels, our students are grounded in scientific, mathematical, and technical knowledge through coursework that keeps pace with current relevant technologies. Our goal is to empower our students to become tomorrow's technology leaders.
Both education and research involve inter-departmental co-operation and national or international collaborations with academic and industrial partners.
