Principles and baselines related to teaching and learning
Additional weekly exercise hour available for repetition of old and new knowledge.
After the course the student knows the potential and limitations of decision & control both within and beyond actual control engineering ; knows typical control structures , and connections and the roles nature of the control system components ; can derive simple dynamical models, simplify models and perform model conversations ; masters typical system terms and concepts including performance specifications ; is able to describe and analyze control systems and other dynamical systems ; understands , and can analyze and even limitedly design stability, damping, accuracy and speed of systems with standard methods.

Correspondence of content
The third weekly exercise hour is for repetition of pre-knowledge and new topics. A shorter course ASE-1257 is available for MSc Degree Program of Machine Automation. The student can take only one of the courses ASE-1256, ASE-1257, ASE-1250. The material may vary from year to year. Extra points are available from a voluntary PC session PCG and from a Guest Lecture or another session.
