What does a Control Engineer do?

A control engineer is the one responsible to regulate the functions of machines, engines and mechanical equipment. The engineer performs researches and tests and analyzes how the design is used in relation to the function of the system. It’s important a system works consistent and operates within the specified tolerances. The engineer works to prevent the system from working incorrect and provides the necessary data. When the system doesn’t operate like it should, the control engineer works to repair the operating system. It’s possible a system needs adaptations, depending on what tasks it is used.

What is Control engineering?

Control engineering, also knows as control systems engineering, is the discipline that uses control theory to design a systems that works exactly like you want it to work. It designs systems with a desired behaviour. In the control engineering discipline sensors are used to measure the behaviour of the controlled device. These sensors give feedback to the actuators (a type of motor which is responsible for moving or controlling a system or mechanism), which can make corrections if possible. Some devices are designed to perform without the need of human correction. This is automatic control, like the cruise control in your car.

Control Systems Engineering

Control Engineering is the work of a control engineer. He or she is responsible for designing, installing, developing, maintaining or managing control systems used for the monitoring and controlling of engineering processes, machinery or engineering systems. It involves designing and developing new control systems and the engineer needs to work within cost and time constrained environments. Control engineering mainly focusses on the implementation of control systems derived by mathematical modeling.
