    The Master of Science in Control Engineering provides students with an interdisciplinary and methodological approach that suits a large variety of students with a first cycle degree in information engineering, industrial engineering, computer science, mathematics or physics.

    The programme introduces students to the basic methodologies of automatic control, including:

    • Modelling and identification of dynamic systems;

    • Measurement processing and on-line filtering of sensor data;

    • Use of feedback to stabilize process behaviour and optimise its performance;

    • Integrated automatic control system design.

    These concepts apply to a wide range of engineering sectors and are often necessary to enable the interaction of other technologies with advanced applications, both in industry and service automation.

    In general, the Masters Programme in Control Engineering provides students with:

    • A general approach to the analysis and design of complex automatic control systems;

    • The ability to custom tailor complex automatic control systems to function in target applications.

    Beyond specific technical know-how in Control Engineering, this Masters programme provides students with tools to describe and understand the most common engineering issues, skills for creating, planning, designing and running automatic systems, processes and services, and skills for testing scientific innovation. Moreover, the programme introduces students to the correct use of written and spoken technical English.

    120 credits are required for the Masters degree. These are earned as follows

    • 2 mandatory core courses, for a total of 24 credits, during the first year
    • 6 courses chosen from a group of 9 core courses, totaling 36 credits

    Program requirements

    This page contains all the information for applications to the Master course in Control Engineering for the academic year 2015-16 (starting in September 2015).The Master of Science in Control Engineering typically admits student having a three-year (or four-year) bachelor degree, such as the B.S.E. in Computer Science and Control Engineering issued at DIAG, Sapienza (available in similar form also in other italian or foreign universities). This Master fits also to a large variety of students having a bachelor degree with technical/scientific background in the areas of information engineering, industrial engineering, computer science, mathematics, or physics. All students must have a good knowledge of spoken and written English.Tuition fees are in the maximum amount of 3,064 Euro/year for any student, and can be paid in two installments each year (minor changes may incur to this fee for the second year of the course). Part of the tuition fee can be waived according to the student's income (requests are considered on a case-by-case basis). Students applying for a reduction of the tuition fees must clearly specify this in their application. Tuition fees cover courses, exams, access to laboratories, to the library, and to other department facilities. The fee does not include housing, books, or any other course material required by the Master program.Instructions for admission are slightly different for foreign students who are EU residents or students who are non-EU residents. All academic records must be issued by the home institutions. School and academic records must be legalised by the country's competent authorities, translated in Italian or English by an official translator.EU residentsThe application deadline to the Master in Control Engineering for students who are EU residents is September 4, 2015.In order to apply, these students must prepare the following documents:M1 application form (available here for download as doc or pdf file)University diploma or temporary substituteOfficial transcript of academic recordsCurriculum vitaeLetter(s) of recommendationLetter of motivationCertificate proving the student´s proficiency of the English language, e.g., TOEFL/IELTS (this does not apply to native English speakers)Copy of a valid passport with photoThe above documents must be sent only by email to admissions@diag.uniroma1.it. A hard copy will be needed by the local Embassy in order to apply for the Visa.
