Master of Science in Systems Engineering and Engineering Cybernetics

The Master’s degree program “Systems Engineering and Engineering Cybernetics” is jointly implemented at the Institute of Automation and Electronic Instrumentation of KNRTU-KAI with Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg.

The program is characterized by universality and cross-cutting nature of the training. It focuses on training of broad specialists in the field of complex automation for various sectors of the economy. Graduates will carry out the development, design, manufacturing, commissioning and operation of automation equipment and systems for special purposes (airplanes, helicopters, spacecraft, ships, including hydrofoil), to manage complex technical objects, units, technology and manufacturing processes. Masters level of training allows them to conduct theoretical and applied research in the field of automation and control systems. The content of training includes all aspects of real objects automation: the identification and modeling of objects, systems design and control algorithms, and finally, their hardware and software implementation, including on the basis of microprocessors and control computers. Automation and control specialists - one of the most universal and sought-after specialists.

Department of Automation and Control is working in the field of aviation (together with TsAGI Zhukovsky, JSC NPO "Design Bureau named after M.P. Simonov" and JSC MVEN Kazan), space applications (JSC "ISS" Reshetnev "Zheleznogorsk), automotive vehicles (Concern Tractor plants Cheboksary), shipbuilding (Zelenodolsk design bureau and plant named after A.M. Gorky) and other industries. Work is in progress on the development of intelligent control systems for general aviation. Continue research within creative collaboration agreements with CHPZ "Elara" Cheboksary, JSC NPP "Temp-Avia" Arzamas, Ural instrument-making plant (APP) Ekaterinburg, RDCB Ramenskoye. The department has a highly qualified scientific and teaching staff. Taught by eight professors and doctors of technical and physical and mathematical sciences, thirteen associate professors, candidates of sciences.
