University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK

University of Sheffield is one of the research-intensive universities in the UK. It is a member of the prestigious Russell Group universities, world top renowned for its excellence and impact. Within the subject area of ‘Engineering, Technology and Computer Sciences’ it is consistently ranked within the top 5 universities the UK and top 15 within Europe by the Academic Ranking of World Universities. Automatic Control and Systems Engineering (ACSE) is one of the largest departments devoted to the subject in Europe, with 28 academic staff, 30 research staff, 20 professional and support staff and nearly 400 taught and research students. This is an internationally leading research department with a vibrant culture spanning all aspects of Systems and Control Engineering. Research activities are focused on many of the complex issues of modern life including aerospace and transport, energy and and the environment, manufacturing and robotics, surveillance systems and, more recently, social policy. Underpinning research themes are: modelling and simulation, control and optimisation, sensing and actuation, signal processing and decision support, and, of
course, systems engineering. Together, these provide a friendly and supportive environment for strategic, multi-disciplinary collaborations with leading academic groups and major industrial partners. Its activities are supported by research councils: EPSRC, ESRC, ESA, EU, Royal Society, and companies such as Rolls Royce, Selex ES, BAE Systems, Ford Motor, QinetQ and Network Rail.
