Dynamic Systems & Control

The Dynamic Systems and Control group at UC San Diego integrates, at a fundamental level, system design, modeling, and control disciplines to obtain improved performance of the dynamic response of engineering systems using feedback. As such, the areas of research of the Dynamic Systems and Control group is a joint activity in the topics of systems integration, dynamic system modeling, feedback control design, and the fundamentals of systems theory as applied to linear and nonlinear dynamic systems, mechatronics, structural control, aerospace, and fluid-mechanical systems.
