The research group at the university has several long-term collaborative projects based in industry needs to streamline its processes. Project focus is the development and application of control theory. Currently we are working with companies such as. ABB, SSAB, LKAB, Boliden, SCA, Skellefteå Kraft and Volvo CE.
From theory to application
The group is known for the research findings to reach out to industry, primarily through a strong involvement in the Process IT Innovations. Research in Control has resulted in commercial products including cranes, paper machines and coal injection plants.
Courses in control engineering at both undergraduate and graduate level are given in many college and engineering program at the university, for example Bilsystemteknik, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Applied Physics and Electrical.
